These walled gardens run along the Herne Bay seafront provide a nice place to relax and a slightly different piece of scenery. Built to celebrate the twinning of Waltrop and Herne Bay. A good place to chill out with a coffee or an ice-cream.

Situated on the seafront these well maintained gardens are a pleasure to look at all year round. Benches strategically placed ensure you do not encroach on anyone else (unless you want to of course). Stay all day, buy your fish and chips and eat them...More

These are the sort of gardens you imagine if you read those delightful Ladybird books. They are timeless in appearance - superb for a romantic walk any time of the year. Thanks to the local authority for keeping them perfect.

If it's a bit blustery on the prom then a few yards back you have the gardens. Beautifully planted by the council with benches and statues. A real sun trap. Photos taken at 8pm.

These were some of the best maintained gardens that I have seen in a long time, beautifully laid out along the seafront. The new flood defences have been sympathetically built and look as if they belong. Treat yourself and take a lovely stroll along the...More

Small gardens on the sea front. They are pretty in spring and summer with flowers, and there are seats to rest in with good views of the gardens.

A lovely peaceful garden, well maintained and plenty of places to sit and relax. Not sure how it is affected in winter as it is protected by flood gates from the sea, but I will certainly head over that way this coming winter to see...More
