50 Redcross Way, London, SE1 1HA
Red Cross Garden is an award winning open space which Bankside Open Spaces Trust (BOST) renovated and restored to its original Victorian layout in 2005. Steeped in history it was built along with its neighbouring cottages in 1886. Designed by Octavia Hill (1838-1912) a social reformer and one of the three founders of The National Trust, this park was her flagship project.
At the time, Red Cross Garden demonstrated the importance of improving housing for the poor and the need for meaningful occupations for poor workers. Today it’s a tranquil spot to relax and enjoy your lunch outdoors.
