These gardens are absolutely beautiful. It is well worth walking from the ponds at the bottom to the antique greenhouse at the top admiring all the different plants as you go. The view overlooking St Peter Port is stunning. Each year the gardens seem to get better and better and I have been coming to Guernsey for over 20 years! The Museum is also well worth a visit with static and temporary exhibitions. A refreshing cup of tea listening to the live music is very relaxing

These gardens are free to visit, the views are amazing, the flower beds are well-tended and stocked with interesting plants. We enjoyed our visit and the museum shop had some unusual gifts. Well worth a visit, recommended.

Worth the walk for the view and allows you to be at peace . There was a band on the band stand playing and that was lovely. Next door is the exhibition space. A good explore.

Tucked away behind St Peter Port's town centre, Candie Garden is a formal park with some statues and a small museum and a venue.

Once upon a time The Beatles played here, which I found remarkable!

It's a tranquil place to rest after a day's exploring or just to take a break mid way.
