Explore the roof gardens at the Southbank Centre

Back to the Southbank Centre today, where as part of their Festival of Britain 60th anniversary celebrations they've put a new garden on the roof of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, overlooking the new Urban beach.

The rooftop garden has, we are told, been developed in partnership with the Eden Project by a team of 50 people who have faced adversity in life, with many having either being homeless, in prison or suffering from mental health problems.

When your author popped by, it was a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the South Bank below, and was looking in fine shape, though the grass looked like it was starting to suffer from all the sunshine, wind and lack of rain we've been having.

If you want to know more about the garden, which is there until the beginning of September, click here.
