Worthing's own botanical garden. Very impressed with the size and range of flowers on display. Seems a great place to wander and lose yourself in the various areas. Particularly liked the chalk pit. Can then go for a walk to the top of the hill at the same time.

This is a lovely place to visit. The gardens are well kept and very beautiful. I had a picnic with my grandsons and then we went exploring and playing hide and seek, what fun. Beautiful plants and insect life

Time out with my husband to enjoy the spring flowers and listen to the birdsong as we walk around the gardens. Seats available as the terrain is a bit up and down on the hillside of the chalkpit. Plants are suited to the chalky soil. Refreshments and toilets easily accessible.

Revisited a year ago. This time full of tulips, wild cyclamen, bluebells and cherry blossoms. It is free entry and a lovely tranquil place to visit at different times! Trail can be tailored to how much you can walk. Benches to sit down for a rest. I love the ponds and many people bring their picnics and children can run... More

We called in to see this garden before going on to Arundel. What a wonderful hidden gem free to get in. All they ask is a donation at the end. You feel as though it goes on for ever there are paths leading off to different areas. The tulips and the blue bells are in full bloom a few hours... More

We went here for a few hours in the afternoon and had a lovely relaxing time with the kids. Beautiful flowers and felt like we were in a little haven away from hustle and bustle. Excellent photo opportunities as well with the stunning colours.

Beautiful place for a picnic. We visited here for the first time over the weekend! The sun was shining and the gardens are kept in a perfect condition and not one piece of litter on site. However I feel there should be more bins but that's the only fault.
