The garden area isn't too big and has smooth pathways through the different areas, with plenty of seating dotted about. It is also located very close to the public toilets (20p entry).

We sat in these gardens after a long walk along the coastal path. A very talented singer entertained us with his guitar; it wasn’t intrusive, just lovely playing & singing. There’s a bandstand & flowers, right near the shops.

Has a really good tourist information center, is immaculate, a trickling brook, a quaint little bandstand & is very dog friendly, just remember to pick up after your dog as everyone seems to do as we didn’t see a single stray ‘poop’ on our visit....More

The gardens are great to walk through, not only are they really clean and tidy, but there are stalls or some form of entertainment going on throughout the day. Its also close to many shops, bars, restaurants which is very convenient.

Nice to walk through while perusing Dartmouth. A small, unpretentious garden it nonetheless offers the visitor some lovely plant combinations, even some ideas to take back for the home garden. No charge, the garden just adds to the beauty of Dartmouth and is certainly worth...More
