The Phoenix Garden - WC2

The Phoenix Garden is a hidden gem slap bang in the centre of London.  I am reluctant to write about it as I use it as a sanctuary and the last thing I want is for it to be full of people however in the spirit of altruistic blogging, I am happy to share this wonderful secret with you.  Tucked in beside St Giles church and behind CentrePoint, just near the intersection of Shafetsbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road, the Phoenix Garden is run by volunteers and is there purely as a community space - how great is that?  Thanks to these generous volunteers, stressed out workers can eat their sandwich in one of the most tranquil spaces in London.  Forget trying to fight for a dusty square metre in Soho Square, walk another 5 minutes and chill out in Phoenix Garden.
