Lovely flower beds.

Lovely gardens to visit if you want a bit of tranquility. The flower beds are beautiful and there are slopes for disabled access.

We love Scarborough's parks, all of which owe a lot to their Victorian heritage. Of course, they can be in need of a little TLC from time to time, there is a lot to do to maintain Scarborough but the Italian gardens on a summer evening with the bats darting about can be a magical place. Easier to go down... More

The squirrels are the highlight in the Italian Gardens, as are the wild birds. The squirrels demand food and sit on peoples knees. I love the shrubbery and wild flowers.

A must if you are on holiday in Scarborough. This is a beautiful walk wether it is in winter or Summer. There are many routes to take through the gardens all coming out at different places on the South Bay, Spa end

The South Cliff gardens offer a Labyrinth of paths leading from the top all the way down to the very bottom of the cliff to the beach. I lived in Scarborough for 15 years and for the last 20, have always visited regularly to see family since moving away. Every time I go and walk the gardens on south cliff... More

The gardeners work all year round to keep our Italian gardens looking beautiful. I walk through most days taking my dogs down to the beach (Dogs on leads through the gardens) We are about to get a good investment for improvements too. (Please please take your litter home or find a bin to put it in)

This is a wonderful peaceful place to reflect and ponder in. Beautifully tended throughout the year and you can just imagine those victorian ladies parading with their parasols. Feed the squirrels and selection of british birds or just sit and take it all in. Good space for artists.

These gardens are the gem of Scarbourough south cliff. I used to walk through them with my parents every week in the late 1950's, and despite the passage of 60 years they are still as of New Year's Day 2017, idyllic and beautifully kept. There were always the most gorgeous large goldfish in the pool even in the dead of... More
