Lovely gardens just off the quayside and in the centre of town. Free to enter with benches and toilets, car park and shops nearby. Nice for a quick stop.

This is a good place to take a rest and watch the world go by. There were some buskers playing gentle acoustic guitars while we were there. Lovely well kept gardens to enjoy. Public toilets and tourist information close by.

Lovely gardens with lots of seating, a bandstand, and great all round views. A good way to relax whilst doing a whistle stop tour of Dartmouth.

Situated immediately adjacent to the main centre car park, the gardens provide a pleasant and relaxing oasis in the center of Dartmouth, such that one can almost forget the traffic just yards away. Attractive gardens, plenty of seats, a bandstand and often live music to...More
