A space in a space reminiscent of Italian cliff top garden

Would like more Mediterranean plants that epitomise the region but the setting and micro climate is an unexpected gem.

Definitely the quieter end of Scarborough and a lovely place to sit and relax. Lots of squirrels about when we went. Obviously people take nuts for them as we saw all the empty peanut shells - must remember to take nuts next time

Tucked under the south cliff these well kept gardens are a delight to wander through at any time of the year. Peaceful and tranquil.

How lucky we are to have the Parks and Gardens here in Scarborough. I am never, ever fed up of visiting the Italian Gardens on the South Bay and they looked beautiful in the May sunshine. Well done, Scarborough Borough Council!

Scarborough is a very pretty town , getting down to the beach is challenging but they do have a cable train which is fun. We were disappointed that there were few places open after 6pm to get something to eat

the gardens are beautiful and you feel at peace there. its definitely worth a visit. Tucked away on the quieter area of Scarborough, but a real treat to go and sit or look around the flowers. A great walk as well if you are up to it as it goes all the way down to the Spa area.
