A sizable and beautifully well kept gardens in a lovely village. There are benches throughout which you can sit on and take in your surroundings. You have a view of the windmill from the gardens also. A lovely break from the buzz of main Brighton.

These gardens are free in the middle of Rottingdean and open all the time. Nice to wander around and relax. There is a covered area in the event of rain.
