Really lovely gardens, with a wide variety of plants and trees but dogs, even cute tiny friendly ones, are not allowed. There are adequate areas to walk your dogs around the outside of the gardens tho. The outdoors Shakespeare in the Summer is fantastic :)...More

Lovely area to visit for a countryside walk with a lovely cafe to have a drink and look at the scenery

We go to this cafe after walking at High Salvington or Highdown Gardens, it probably the most cosy comfy place we know to get a coffee and slice of delicious cake. Inside and outside seating, friendly helpful staff and great customer service with reasonable prices.
