  • Visitor Information

Located at the entrance to one of the most well known graffiti hotspots in London, Leake Street Pocket Park is an urban oasis of shrubs, perennials, grasses, climbers and trees. Where the Leake Street tunnel meets Lower Marsh the space, previously a dumping ground for rubbish, has been turned into an inviting green area designed by a local architect. It's now a popular place for people to visit, using the space to sit, socialise and eat - enjoying street food from Lower Marsh Market nearby.
