Lower Gardens, Bournemouth

4.6
Sought out for its cultivated beauty since the Victorian era, Lower Gardens gave birth to a whole town. The gardens are split into three areas: The Lower Gardens play host to concerts and events, the Central Gardens are in the center of town, and the Upper Gardens retain much of their Victorian character. Visit the Alum Chine for award-winning tropical gardens near the sea, and the Pinewalk for the soothing smell of pine trees. You'll also find a rock garden, innumerable flower varieties, and leisurely sporting. For golf, visit Meyrick Park, where you'll also find outdoor bowling.
