The beauty of College Garden has been carefully cultivated for over 900 years, the private garden of Westminster Abbey in London. It is mostly closed to the general public, however, it is opened on occasion on some Tuesday and Thursday afternoons during the course of the year.
It is the third of three gardens on the grounds of the Abbey, marked by a stone precinct wall that can be seen at the far end, first constructed in 1376. The Earl of Burlington designed the school dormitory on the West side and there are four decaying statues of saints, originally carved by Arnold Quellin for an altarpiece. Some of the trees date back as far as 1850 and the newest installation was a water jet fountain in 2002.
