Nothing exciting but a nice walk, nice view of the harbour. Better at night when you have all the lights on but obviously you won’t see the flowers as good.

We strolled through the gardens after visiting the wheel. It was a lovely, relaxing walk with some very pretty views. We found the gardens clean too. We also took advantage of the gardens whilst waiting for our ferry back to Brixham.
