The Lyric, Hammersmith


My friend Jo works  in a darkened room in Hammersmith, in a TV editing suite. If she manages to escape for a lunch break, this is where she goes. It’s the roof garden of the Lyric Theatre, funded partly by the 5p charge for carrier bags at M&S and created by Groundwork London. It contains some pretty neat ideas, such as the benches with raised beds behind them, that could work well in a smaller garden.

Sadly it was so cold and wet when I visited last week that a lone smoker had the garden all to himself.  Let’s hope we have a decent summer so that it can be properly enjoyed.
