Gardens extend for quite a distance along the seafront. They make a pleasant walk plenty of benches for a rest. Children can have an adventure in gardens.

What an amazing view any time of year. It's a lovely walk along the prom to see the gardens or a walk along the top of the hill and look out to sea. There's always something different to spot each time you go.
