Walked into this place whilst visiting clock tower and Jacobs ladder area, all in the same vicinity. Gardens are well tended and must be nice in summer. Opposite Harbour hotel.

Brilliant well maintained gardens.Gardeners always keep up with the seasonal planting. Probably why they have won so many awards. cannot be easy planting when it so close to the sea.
