Welcome to our new website

Welcome to the new King’s Gardens website.  We hope you like our new look for 2018 and the future.

2017 was an exciting year for the gardens; the restoration works have all been completed thus creating an amazingly beautiful historic garden for all to enjoy.  The Heritage Lottery funded project for the gardens has now come to end; I hope you will agree the project has been a great success!

The gardens are fully accessible, home to 9 Grade II listed shelters, a small but functional visitor centre, a unique adventures play area and other attraction, places to dine, a charming community garden featuring the restored fountain and a sensory garden an overall delightful picturesque place to visit.
