Originally above Derry and Tom's department store which opened in 1933, The Roof Gardens were the dream child of the vice president of Barkers, Trevor Bowen, who employed landscape architect Ralph Hancock to realise his vision. There are three themed gardens, with over 70 full size trees, a flowing stream stocked with fish and our resident flamingos Bill, Ben, Splosh and Pecks.
The Roof Gardens employs over 100 talented professionals. Many have worked there for over 10 years; they work hard together, and play hard too, and every single member goes the extra mile to provide the world class 'Virgin style' service they are renowned for. The Roof Gardens are a cut above the rest, literally.
