Found the garden by surprise while looking for the cable car. The gardens are spread out so you think there is only a small area but the path weaves in and out and it was very peaceful above the noise of the town below. There would have been good views of the harbour at one time but now too many... More

Visited with my fiancé and both of us loved the gardens. It was a lovely walk, and worth a visit. We were shocked by the amount of litter and the signs saying there had been graffiti and to report strange behaviour. The gardens are lovely and why people cannot take their rubbish home, or put it in one of the... More

Found the garden at the bottom of the cable car. Beautiful and tranquil contrast to shabby top of the Rock and bustling Main Street. Really enjoyable and FREE!

The Alameda Gardens felt like a green lung at the side of a pretty busy road. Once entering the gates all hustle and bustle drops away and you can walk or sit in peaceful absorption of nature. Well marked paths and labelled plants allow you learn about the various gardens and there are lots of seats to relax on. Bird... More
