“Beautifully Kept!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

These gardens are right in the centre of this historic city and provide a haven away from the traffic that can build up on the ring road and around Westgate Towers. It can be a useful cut through except that you often stop to watch the ducks or to look at the gardens. It can also be a brilliant picnic venue - just 5 minutes from the shops! It can really give you the best of both worlds - peaceful gardens and bustling city centre all in one!

“Love.....”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

These gardens/river any time of year. Flower bed displays are always a delight to see. Have spent many a happy hour with the kids or on my own reading.

“Hot and cold”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Cannot be beaten for scenery, wonderful in the summer to sit and relax amongst your own thoughts and just watch the world go by. Sadly tarnished by the numerous undesireables who spoil the ambience with their foul smell and language

“Lovely riverside location”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

These pretty gardens stretch out alongside the river Stour. It doesn't take long to leave the town and feel as though you are in the countryside. A very pleasant and peaceful place in which to while away some time when you need a break from medieval history!
