About

Located one hundred feet above Kensington High Street in central London, The Roof Gardens and Babylon restaurant are truly spectacular.

Located one hundred feet above Kensington High Street in central London, The Roof Gardens and Babylon Restaurant are truly spectacular. Originally above Derry and Tom's department store which opened in 1933, The Roof Gardens were the dream child of the vice president of Barkers, Trevor Bowen, who employed landscape architect Ralph Hancock to realise his vision.

There are three themed gardens, with over 70 full-size trees, a flowing stream stocked with fish and our resident flamingos Bill, Ben, Splosh and Pecks.

Spanish Garden:

Based on the Alhambra in Granada, Spain, this garden has a distinctly Moorish flavour.

Tudor Garden:

This garden is filled with evergreen shrubs surrounded by fragrant lilies, roses and lavender in the summer months, while wisteria fills the air with its delicate fragrance.

English Woodland:

This is undoubtedly at its best in the spring months, when thousands of narcissus, crocus, muscari and anemones burst into life.


The Roof Gardens
