The area
Address
Neighbourhood: City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

    Look for the Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice
    Postman's Park gets its name from the postmen working at the General Post Office Headquarters and Sorting Office across the road who used the park for a lunchtime stop, Today it is popular with staff and patients from the nearby St Bart's Hospital. The park also houses the G.F. Watts Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice - a series of plaques commemmorating those who lost their own life while saving the life of another. The stories make fascinating reading.

    A Garden of Discovery
    Postman's Park is a small green area within the City of London. It is on the road called Little Britain and is free to enter. There are traditional trees and shrubs in the park as well as some more exotic palms and other plants. There are plenty of places to sit and relax and when I visited there were people letting their dogs enjoy the green space. One of the things that I loved about the park is the small wooden shelter that has the names of people who have lost their lives saving others. There are monuments to people from three centuries. Definitely worth checking out and pausing to reflect.

    Quiet and charming little park
    Off-the-beaten-path, quiet, and serene. Great spot to stop, read, eat lunch, etc. They've got a memorial to everyday people who lost their lives saving others. Would recommend if you're looking for a smaller park to hang out in.

This is a quaint and green space with an interesting heritage right opposite the main entrance of St Bart’s hospital and is a very welcome retreat for people visiting poorly loved ones. Well worth a little detour or dally to check out the commemorations of those that lost their lives while trying to save others.

A nice little oasis of nature......but the poor fish below the slime (toxic?) covered fountain. Oh dear!

Do you think some kind soul could clean this fountain and pond up?

Small, well maintained park, with intriguing history, especially the loggia with assorted tiles, from 100 years ago to recent time, each with a story of someone with a tale of bravery, but alas died in the incident whilst trying to save others

This little peaceful park is squirrelled away in between the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. It has an amazing wall of plaques commemorating people who have died whilst saving others. It is a very sobering wall with stories of children and adults alike.

Walk through here every week on my way to/from City Thameslink to work, gardeners keep this place really well, and the tiles are interesting to read. Nice place to take a load off too, note it is only open in daylight hours so open less in the wintertime.

Lovely little park. Lots of people sat eating an al fresco lunch and enjoying respite from the heat in this lovely garden.
Interesting little nooks and crannies.

Little cute park. The most fascinated thing in the park are the plates to commemorate the heroic actions of ordinary people to save lives. The plates describes their actions and how it al happened.
