The Bishop’s Garden is located on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral on the south side of the cathedral. The partially walled garden contains roses, herbs and perennials and a pleasant winding walkway.
At one edge of the Bishop’s Garden is the Shadow House, a stone gazebo with a slate roof. The wooden benches inside make it a comfortable, secluded place for a quite visit.

Closest Metro Station: Cleveland Park on the Red Line is the nearest Metro Station to the Washington National Cathedral, but it is about eight-tenths of a mile away. That’s the approximate straight line distance rather than the actual walking or driving distance.
Lost Symbol by Dan Brown: Dan Brown describes the Shadow House as sitting “elegantly amid meandering pathways of stones dug from George Washington’s private quarry.” The Shadow House is mentioned in Chapters 63, 67 and 79.
