Walking around these gardens is quite pleasant, The once famous dock, now the Gardens, was where the ficticiuos character Robinson Crusoe sailed from. Highly recommend it.

Heritage weekend, we went out of our way to get close to this for the first time in my life! Having admired it from a far for decades and pointed it it out to many visiting friends, we finally got there!!!

A delightful park in the centre of Hull. These gardens were constructed on the former dock when ships became too large to get through past the Customs House. It is well planted and maintained with statues, water features and sculptures.

Always look spotless. Love watching the fountains. The gardens are always so well kept not a flower out of space. Beautiful.
