Lovely surroundings to soak up the sun or stretch your legs. I particularly enjoy the ponds often hosting dragonflies!

Everyone needs a place to go to escape? A safety zone. A place of time-out. A Me-time oasis. Good news!! It is here. Lovely, tranquil gardens to sit, walk, stroll & unwind. Enjoy.

Very well kept gardens almost in the middle of town, nice place to sit and read on a summers day, small children take care as there are fish ponds as part of the scenery.

Very nice airy garden with a variery of shrubs. If you want to sit down be sure to bring a mat or towel. Beautiful peaceful place but a shame they can’t keep out homeless people who scatter their litter everywhere. Don’t go by yourself though...More

This is somewhere to come for peace and quiet. Very few people visit. Attractively arranged garden, a geometric plan with central fountain. Well kept, with range of mature trees, hedges and flowers.
