The Garden

Welcome to London’s new garden.

The Garden Bridge will offer a new kind of green space in the heart of the city, cementing London’s status as the greenest capital in Europe. Designed to reflect the rich cultural heritage of London’s River Thames and both riverbanks, it will provide an ever-changing seasonal landscape.

“The Garden Bridge will be an extraordinarily special place, either to race across, relax in or look back at the rest of the city’s sights.” Thomas Heatherwick

The Bridge

A breathtaking 366m-long copper-nickel structure.

The bridge will be beautiful from all angles. It has been designed to offer people different ways to experience the garden. For commuters, it will provide a quick and beautiful route across the river. For wanderers, the bridge will create a series of intimate spaces in which to stop and linger.

Explore the bridge

This is a unique opportunity to be part of a new landmark for London. Help us make this vision a reality.
