No change a lovely place to sit and enjoy the flowers and views. Some of it has been spoilt by the buildings that have appeared over the years.

If you’re a local or visitor Candie gardens is a must. Fantastic displays and museum. Whilst there visited the Victor Hugo exhibition, a wonderful collection of his works. Lovely cafe with delicious cakes and pleasant location.

Beautiful gardens with stunning views of St. Peter Port and Herm & Sark. Visited them daily on our walk to the harbour. There are 2 original Victorian Greenhouses which inspired the design for the ones in Kew Gardens. Café and interesting museum on site.

Came across this during a walk round St Peter Port, the gardens are beautifully kept and the gardeners we met there were knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do,, not just here but about the whole island.

Upper and lower gardens well presented. Not too big to get tired and bored. Flower beds well kept and depending on the time of year you visit the displays would be truly aewsome.

Sorry I wasn't looking for it - so never noticed it. The staff in the Art Gallery on the Park, should be able to let you know.
