Big fan of CS Lewis, enough to get me to taxi across Belfast on a cold, windy, rainy morning in December. However, honestly - the statues just weren't that great. I mean, I worked as a sculptor for Disney way back in the day, so...More

Statues are great, but were surrounded by orange barriers when we visited which spoiled the look. Could do with some information signs that would make the area feel a bit more significant rather than just a few random statues.

C.S. Lewis is a favorite author, so visit to small park piqued my interest. Brilliant, gleaming statues representing scenes and characters from "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe". Repairs were in process so some statues blocked from good access. Good addition to a changing...More

Statues were very nice but overall garden was a bit small. Spend about 30 minutes here. Worth a visit but would be better if it were bigger.

There is a large car park for the offices close by - it's located behind the Holywood Arches Library - take a left almost as soon as you turn into the Holywood Road off Newtownards Road
