Checked out the wonderful roof garden on the roof of the John Lewis Oxford Street store today – and I think I found the most perfect place to spend a lunch break! The roof has been completely transformed from a normal greying concrete jungle to a more plant-based variety of jungle. Living walls, floral beds, and potted plants line the roof, while astro-turf (in one of the four varieties the store sells) lies beneath your feet.
There’s some great views of Oxford street from up high – none of which I managed to capture, of course.
It’s free to visit, and there are deck chairs, benches and cushions available to lounge on. There’s also a Joe and the Juice booth providing food and drinks. The garden is to celebrate the 150th anniversary of John Lewis, and will be open until 31 August.
