The rock garden was superb, but the wild flower meadow was past its peak.

On one side of the road into Brighton is Preston Park where there were two sections of wild flower meadow. Unfortunately one part was past its prime. On the other side of the road... read more

On the other side of the road is The Rock Garden which was very good. The paths are rather rough so watch your step. However, the plantings were good. There was a large... More

Preston Park is around 30 minutes walking from the Pier, all London Road walking up. It's great for feeling the nature in Brighton, has some courts to play tennis, football or basketball. Or you can also relax and picnic :-).

I visited Preston manor expecting it to be worth a visit, but I was not impressed with the size of the witch craft exhibition, it was in just one small room, I would say it was very poor. The house was nice but it doesn't take very long to see everything.

This is a great park for walking, jogging, relaxing, picnic - whatever floats your boat really. There is so much to see and do in here and for the four days I was staying just opposite, I went walking in the park every day. There are two cafes although I didn't use either so can't comment on them but they... More

Look lovely. You can park along the street outside and it has lots of little Rock gardens in Preston Rock Gardens and seats.

Preston park is really lovely, theres plenty of car parking, lovely walking area and a lovely cafe in the middle with great cakes. Toilets are there as well. Plenty of room for children to play or just sit and enjoy it.

Yes, it's a lovely and broad, green and spreading park, well-treed and with ample lawns for picnics, with some gracious old buildings around. Well-used by locals and others, simple ball-kicking allowed, some dogs on leashes visible (but I'm not sure what dog limits may apply). Worthwhile for a very peaceful 'breathing space' if you need to get fresh air, clear... More

Fabulous wide space in the middle of the city with everything a park needs - cycle track, tennis courts, paved walks and LOTS of green space and trees. Don't miss the Rotunda Cafe. Not pretty but fab cup of tea and perfectly good cakes and general meals
