Lovely spot to have a bit of lunch when the sun comes out. When it's dry we often walk over from the office to eat in the gardens and watch the world go by. Well maintained flower beds and seating area

Lovely colourful gardens, beautifully planted out with benches for a little sit down. Did some people watching and enjoyed a bit of peace and quiet at the end of a summer afternoon.
