Looks lovely and very well kept. Bit of a climb, not easy for elderly and wheelchairs. Lovely tea shop close by.

Having visited Scarborough a number of times I had never ventured along South cliff until this year when I discovered the Italian Garden. What a beautiful peaceful area to stroll through or just sit on a bench and enjoy.

We walked through the gardens to get to the sea front from the top and came back via the cabke car. There are quite a few steps so be aware but there may be an alternative path. The setting is really pretty and peaceful.

Lovely gardens to visit if you want a bit of tranquility. The flower beds are beautiful and there are slopes for disabled access.
