These gardens are a must visit on a warm sunny day, lots of clean green areas to sit and beautiful surrounding all well kept and presented. The team work very hard to maintain this breath of fresh air. There is a beautiful large pond with Koi swimming around and the peaceful atmosphere is delightful.

Tucked away just off the seafront, around the back of marine court and the royal victoria hotel, in valley steep valley surrounded by the oldest and most interesting buildings in st leonards is this gem of a gardens well landscaped and with intersting views in all directions. The gardens play host to events throughout the year including an excellent shakespeare in the park in early autumn and a delight all year round.

Burton St Leonards was the original St Leonards old town built in the early 1800s by James and Decimus Burton (the archetects of much of bloomsbury and tunbridge wells) in a regency style. The area centres around Maze Hill and St Leonards Gardens and contain a wealth of interesting buildings including, the Clock House (an ecclesiastic Gothic style villa), Gloucester Lodge (a large mansion once home to Princess Sophia of Gloucester), North Lodge (a gatehouse in castellated style and former home of Henry Rider Haggard, South Lodge (another pre-victorian gateway), The Lawn/The Uplands (large regency villas), Assembly Rooms / Masonic Hall (built in classical style now a cultural venue), Crown House (the oldest building in St Leonards, once visited by then princess Victoria), Highlands Mansions (built in the style of scottish fairlytale castles). The area is a must to explore on foot for people with in interest in history and archetecture, there are also guided walks in the summer with events in the gardens throughout the year and annual festival in celebration of the history of the area.
