Events at the Roof Garden

We’re celebrating our 150th anniversary and we’d love you to join us at our very special roof garden at John Lewis Oxford Street.

The rooftop has been transformed with a mix of traditional and contemporary garden design elements into a place for you to relax, take in the view of the London skyline, and enjoy a series of events. The roof garden will be open from Saturday 3 May, a tranquil space where you can enjoy a bite to eat and a fresh juice from "Joe and the Juice".

We want you to look, smell and discover one of the largest new roof gardens in the capital. Designer Tony Woods takes an innovative approach to traditional garden design by utilising British landscape features with the zeitgest of today. Planting has been carefully selected to ensure that the garden provides an abundance of colour and scent throughout our 150 celebrations, and gardeners from our own Longstock estate will also be helping to transform
the space.

The plants are nectar-rich and include favourite plants of yesteryear, such as roses and lavender. More contemporary planting includes blocks of textural grasses, peppered with wild flowers, and living wall schemes to encourage biodiversity.

Tony Woods became the RHS Young Garden Designer of the Year 2013 for his ‘Escape to the City’ urban garden. His winning design conveyed how you can achieve tranquillity and escape, even in an urban garden. Tony is founder and owner of The Garden Club London.

The Roof Garden is accessible through the shop and will open daily 10am – 4pm (Sunday 11.30am - 4pm) until 31 August .

And while escaping the hustle and bustle of the city up on the roof, enjoy a refreshing juice, tea or coffee and a bite to eat from Joe the Juice. We hope you’ll also take in our 150 years anniversary exhibition on the 3rd floor, which runs until 31 August.
