Attraction details

These gardens are beautiful, with an array of trees (all informatively labelled), a beautiful flowing stream and some wonderful artwork. However, the gem of these gardens is the craft shop, which holds handmade goods by many different designers, from greetings cards to glassware, there are so many beautiful pieces - definitely worth a visit.

This beautiful ancient walled garden has beautiful flower beds & herbaceous boarders interesting shrubs & trees. For example, there is a wonderful example of a tulip tree in the middle of the gardens. It sits next to the Tudor manor house of Southover Grange and views can be seen over the rooftops up to Lewes Castle.
These gardens are almost unique in England. It provides a safe place for families to picnic and children to play, for people to sit on park benches and quietly enjoy the view, or read a book. Unlike many other parks no dogs are not allowed, so children and babies can play safely, and avoid the common problem of dog faeces.
From spring onwards there is a cafe open for snacks and nearby there is plenty of seating for everyone of all ages to enjoy this open space.

Delightful gardens with a nice mix of planting, a short walk from the railway station, a great place to enjoy a lunchtime sandwich in summer oe in winter in a sheltered corner and the sun is out.

It is a beautiful place to go and stay for a while. The café there has a short menu, but if you are happy with a short selection of beverages, cakes and ice-creams you will be fine.

This garden in the middle of Lewes is a place of rest and a meeting place. Different in every season, well kept, we always enjoy it walking through or sitting there and having a glass of wine.
