This Grade II Listed garden is, at 2,220 square metres, the largest open space in the City. It is also what remains of Moor Fields, London’s first public park, dating from 1607.
The present garden was originally laid out in 1815 to a design by Charles Dance the Younger. Finsbury Circus is an oval garden with an immaculate bowling green, home to the City of London Bowling Club. The garden is surrounded by elegant curved terraces containing other listed buildings, and it is known for its mature London plane trees (some over 200 years old), bedding and fine Japanese Pagoda tree, the only one in the City.
