This was part of a bus tour and we arrived on a rainy day to do a walking tour of some rather ordinary public gardens. The highlight was getting out of the rain to have crepes.

The Greenhouses are only open June/July, but the gardens are pleasant to walk around, with plenty of seats available as you progress. Whilst there is a charge to visit the Greenhouses when they are open, the gardens are free.

A lovely garden filled with unusual plants. Well worth spending a few hours there, and walking down to the beach and back. You can also eat some crêpes along the way.
