“Nice park, with lovely gardens, and great for dog walks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Rather pleasant cafe, tennis courts, walled garden, pond with lots of fish, good for dog walking. The gardens are very nice and varied and well kept, with areas designated to wild life and fauna. A squirrel watching paradise,

“A gem of a park with a lovely café”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

This is one of my favourite parks in Brighton. In summer, it is especially gorgeous with several gardens, a sweet little café with good food and coffees, plus ample sporting areas, including a year round free ping pong table.

“A haven of tranquillity fun and history in the City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is just round the corner from where I live, and I have been going here for the past 30 years. It has an excellent children's playground, a small rather basic cafe, a garden for the blind, tennis courts, a bowling green, a fishpond, and areas both open and lightly forested. There a lovely flowers in the Spring. My last visit was in the snow and there was much fun for children (and adults) sliding down the slopes and sharing their happiness with strangers. The park is also historic, and in past times there was a small house to take waters from the spring, there was an aviary, and balloon flights were organised to other parts of Sussex. More on this at the Friends website - http://www.stannswellgardens.co.uk/Pages/History.aspx
The park also stages various events throughout the year, e.g. bands, dramas and other spectacles as part of the Brighton Festival.

“Beautiful little garden”

A lovely place for the family. Lots of things the kids will enjoy while you grab a well earned cuppa and put your feet up.

“one of the nicest surprises in Brighton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

St Ann's Well Gardens has long been my favourite in Brighton, The Cafe has added immensely to the pleasure of being there, especially when (if) the weather is cooperative. Really good food, very child-friendly, wonderful greenery all-round and outdoor seating.
