The Living Wall at The Rubens
Select Date

Our Living Wall

Standing at 350 square metres, the striking Living Wall at The Rubens at the Palace - recently featured on the Netflix docuseries "Down to Earth with Zac Efron" - is a keystone in our efforts to reduce pollution and promote sustainable practices. 

Not only do the 10,000 herbaceous plants provide a wildlife habitat, but they also help to keep the hotel cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter, and improve the air quality and aesthetics in this part of London.

Create a plant-based menu at Borough Market

Meet our Executive Chef Ben Kelliher at the hotel to learn how The Rubens at the Palace is reducing food waste in partnership with Winnow’s cutting-edge monitoring technology, and how we use surplus produce creatively in the kitchen. Chef Ben will also talk about the sustainable and responsible consumption of food, explaining how we work closely with the very best local and responsible suppliers. You will then visit Borough Market together, a historic market dating back to the 12th century with an emphasis on high-quality food and sustainable production.

We are proud that this experience has been selected as a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience.

Looking to the future...

We are continuing our efforts to phase out single-use plastics and reduce our food waste in partnership with Winnow. We also help to support the local community as well as a variety of initiatives, and together with The TreadRight Foundation, we strive to #MakeTravelMatter.
