Oasis near Oxford Street Mar 11, 2017
Walk one block south from Selfridges along either Duke Street or Balderton Street, and you will not believe that you are less than 100 metres away from bustling Oxford Street.

This place began its existence as Duke Street Gardens in the 19th century. It was, and still is, surrounded by residential apartment blocks. In 1902, the street level gardens were removed to allow the construction of an enormous electricity sub-station. At either end of this rectangular structure, there stand two decorative pavilions.

From 1906 until the 1980s, the raised roof of this substation was covered with a garden open to the public. For at least 20 years, the roof garden ceased to exist. In 20i3, having been re-vamped, the gardens on the roof of the electrical facility were re-opened for the public to enjoy.

Wit a water feature, a café, and plenty of plants and seating, this place provides a wonderful refuge from the mayhem of Oxford Street. All within a stones' throw from Selfridges.
