“Expensive”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

The gallery was expensive to enter, with the display not really warrenting the charge. Wonderful job in converting the bandstand into a coffee shop.

“A hidden gem.”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Been to Candie Garden before, but this year discovered the lower gardens. Beautiful, full of flowers, a large fishpond, and hundreds of tadpoles!

“Local Lunch Spot”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

As well as the café, many locals buy their lunch in one of the M&S' at the bottom of the hill, then eat it here.

“A small park with a lovely view”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We had to walk through here on our way to our hotel. There is a beautiful view and a souvenir shop nearby. Quite small. An interesting statue of Victor Hugo.
