No holiday, no problem. Autumn leaves and pumpkin spice are all very well, but sometimes you just need to pretend it’s still summer. Especially if you haven’t managed to escape to somewhere sunny this year like you'd planned. Check out these beautiful indoor gardens in London and convince yourself you’re in a tropical paradise

Here are some recommendations provided by TWISPER and its community.
Brunch under the blossoms at The Florist
Between the blossom-covered trees and the pink roses hanging from the ceilings, The Florist definitely lives up to its name. This is the perfect spot for brunch with bottomless bubbles, mouthwatering Sunday roasts and cocktails as pretty as they are tasty. A must-try in Watford (and Bristol and Liverpool too, if you’re not based in London!).
Pause under the palms at Landmark London
The historic Landmark London has sat proudly in Marylebone since 1899. Though it’s seen many different owners since then, its spectacular Winter Garden has remained at its heart throughout. Take a seat under the palms beneath the soaring eight-storey-high atrium and enjoy an elegant afternoon tea.
Take a breath of fresh air at the Barbican
Behind the Barbican’s iconic brutalist exterior lies a secret garden. In fact, it’s one of the largest greenhouses in London, second only to the world-famous Kew Gardens. The Barbican Conservatory houses over 1,500 types of plants and several fishponds, plus there’s a charming café so you can take in the view from among the trees.
Lose yourself in a sky-high urban jungle
14 Hills, named due to its location on the 14th floor in the 120 Fenchurch Street tower, is not just a glamorous restaurant and a lively late-night bar – it’s also full of indoor trees that’ll have you convinced you’re in a rainforest – until you take in the panoramic views of London, that is. As if that wasn’t reason enough to visit, the food, cocktails and live music nights are excellent too!
Be enchanted by London at the Sky Garden
It's possibly London’s most famous indoor garden – we have to give a shout out to the Sky Garden. Located on the top floor of the Walkie Talkie building, this urban jungle is a bucket list essential for plant-lovers searching for unparalleled views of the city.
