A walk along the promenade on a sunny Sunday is a happy pastime. It is clean and although Autumn the gardens are well maintained and looked after. The sand is great for children. A visit to the view point at Felixstowe docks is interesting and the cafe is very special. It will be interesting to see the new pier head... More

The gardens have recently been refurbished and landscaped. During the summer and autumn,very pretty and still a nice place to be in November. The best areas run from the town hall towards the Spa Pavillion. A nice place to walk and relax with many seating areas. Will use again and again.

Didn't know about these gardens prior to our arrival, so it came as a very pleasant surprise to stumble upon them. They have obviously spent a great deal of time and effort to get to the level they are at. Quite imposing and beautifully maintained, they are a real joy to look at. So many interesting structures as well. Great... More

I love the seafront gardens. I love the smell of the rose garden, the view from the shelters. Worth visiting (even on a rainy day)

The gardens are beautifully kept, lots of nooks and crannies for safe exploring by tinies and oldies alike. Several safely fenced ponds with big fat goldfish. Amazing natural waterfalls, lots of places to sit, great sea views and very flat! Dogs on leads allowed. Really enjoyable.

The gardens are so lovely to walk through and enjoy. Always kept tidy & clean. A few cafes to stop and have a cuppa if you wish. The gardens run alongside the prom and beach, best of both worlds.

This is the first time we have seen all the gardens completed and they are well worth a visit. A gentle stroll along the promenade and then walk back through the gardens themselves. A number of water features and some unusual figures and chairs made from wood can be found around the gardens.
