These are pretty gardens to be found as you head down from the Esplanade to the star disk area on the sea front promenade. Lovely to be enjoyed in the oh so seldom warm weather but a tad cool to sit around for too long...More

There never seem many people visiting when we go but we always go when we visit Scarborough. It's a treat from the past splendour of the town. I expect it would have been even more attractive in its past but the council do a good...More

No. The Grand is in the town, the Italian Gardens are on the South Cliff. Cross the Spa bridge and you're on the South Cliff, 400ms and you'll find the Gardens on the left. Enjoy
