This is a really very very small garden the is in the historic dockyard complex. You cannot visit this garden without paying a admission charge to get into the dockyard, basically not worth it, nothing to see a statue and a few plants.

I do not know your system when visiting, but when we spend time at a site that has multiple attractions, we take coffee or rest breaks, rather than walking on, making the day more enjoyable. There is much to see in the Dockyard and the...More

Nice area in the dockyard to sit down and have a rest from all that's going on in the Portsmouth Dockyard.

This small garden, situated inside the dockyard, is a tranquil area with many plants that are pleasing to the eye. Take a few minutes out from the crowds and hustle of the dockyard to have an enjoyable peaceful 10 minutes.

It's a small garden that delights as the volunteers are enthusiastic planters. The variety of plants is amazing for a small garden. There is also a small area where you can buy some of the plants from the garden.
