The simple rectangular garden is bounded by railings and laid out symmetrically with a central path, well shaded by trees. Either side of the gate are rose beds to commemorate permission given in 1381 to Sir Robert Knollys to construct a bridge across Seething Lane (since vanished) for which the City annually charged him one red rose. In 1983 a bronze bust of Pepys was erected by the Samuel Pepys Club with funds raised by public subscription.
