A haven in the city, not far from Mansion House is the tranquil Cleary Garden. A garden has existed here since the middle ages when the vintners used the site for trading and growing vines. It has undergone a number of remodels since that time with a total recreation after WWII. In 2007 it was redesigned with vines and aromatic plants from the Loire Valley. A little piece of France in the heart of the City of London.
