What a great place to visit, lovely gardens sheltered from the weather. Lots of history of when the garden was created and how it was done and a friendly coffee shop for a relaxing drink.

Situated on the top of the South Downs these well kept Gardens are ideal for a relaxing stroll amongst the many features. Views across Worthing are great on a clear day and the Cafe serves good coffee and excellent food.
