The Full Story

Archbishop_s park (11).JPG
Archbishops Park

A popular medium-sized open space in the heart of Waterloo, with a rich and fascinating history.

Archbishop’s Park sits on what was once part of Lambeth Palace, the London home of the Archbishop of Canterbury. In the 19th Century part of the Palace grounds were set aside for use by local people for sports and recreation, and it was opened as a public park in 1901.

Old Paradise Yard

An original schoolhouse building and former Tibetan Buddhist Centre situated by the Thames, bordering Archbishop’s Park and minutes from South Bank, Old Paradise Yard provides unique creative workspaces and studios to rent. 

A serene garden is sheltered by mature trees, providing a social space and atmospheric backdrop to this unique cluster of spaces for creative minds.

Old Paradise Yard is home to artists, makers, musicians, writers and creative entrepreneurs. Here, a tight-knit community bounce off each other creatively and socially.

The Farm

We’re an urban farm in Waterloo, a hidden gem just moments from the Southbank. We have transformed a strip of wasteland into a flourishing community resource and a haven for nature, where we learn to care for ourselves, others, plants, animals and the environment. 

We run therapeutic and educational activities for children, workshops and seasonal events, and welcome volunteers.
