Day 11 – Overlooking the South Cliff Gardens
Not many tourist know about the South Cliff Gardens and overlook them when coming to the local area. Make sure you’re not one of them and enjoy views that not many get to see.
Taken from the Official South Cliff Gardens:
While most coastal resorts have bedding schemes similar to the superb displays on the Esplanade, there are no major seaside gardens elsewhere that feature plants suitable for coastal conditions displayed in a show garden style. While still retaining the Gardens’ historical integrity plans will be developed for many areas which should be created to show the coastal planting combined into garden design to suit the tough conditions.
Central to this idea is a string of individually designed gardens, large, small and tiny, each based on one of the original garden areas and linked to a shelter so enhancing the historical design.
The Friends issue a regular Newsletter to the membership.
In response to growing concerns about the condition, appearance and misuse of the Gardens and the shelters (such as vandalism and vagrancy) in the South Cliff and Holbeck Gardens, the Friends Group was constituted in 2006. To read our Constitution click on dropdown link above.
