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.

Very beautiful garden. We stopped here to relax and to eat our lunch. It was so calm and relaxing. The view on the whole city was breathtaking.

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.
