This gift to the people of Falmouth is a joy. I would anticipate that when everything is in full bloom it would be wonderful to enjoy the gardens

A nice walk round at the end of a walk along the sea front. Plants are of a tropical nature and local schools participate in doing some of the displays

These gardens are a delightful place to wander around. They're dog friendly too. Although not big, there's plenty to see, including two restored shell grottos and a Stonehenge-style arch. The gardens are really a hidden gem; the quarry garden being particularly interesting. We shall return.

Nice quiet garden close to the sea front and the Princess Pavilions. Note opposite in the other side if the road there is a tunnel down onto Castle Beach
