Through winding streets and past the Cathedral you come to these formal gardens. To create flat terraces here was a massive task when built,thankfully these gardens are still maintained. Despite some sad gardens next to this one you get a nice view of the Loire,...More

Walk down to Blois Old town for something to eat. Old Chateau dominates the town. Walked thru the gardens, really quiet and peaceful. Lovely old gardens with just a few families about.

If you are in Blois make sure you visit these Gardens. It is free and the grounds and view are fantastic. Definitely worth the walk from the magic museum.

Don't visit the cathedral without pausing for a while in these peaceful gardens. You will enjoy great views of the town and of the Loire. There is a children's play area and a nice little cafe where you can enjoy a modestly priced coffee.
