Cloister Garden at

Museum of the Order of St John

Scroll forward through photos

Sheltered by Georgian houses on its southern side and a Norman Church to the north, the Cloister Garden provide an urban oasis cut off from the clamour of the outside world. While at its most beautiful in the Summer months, an ancient olive tree and beds of countless medicinal herbs make it a hidden jewel year-round, and perfect for post-ceremony receptions or as a prelude to dinner in St John's Gate.
