Victoria Gardens, Isle of Portland

4.3
#5 of 7 in Parks in Isle of Portland
Unwind in Edwardian style at Victoria Gardens, a tranquil spot for reflection. A set of tennis courts and a bowling green form the central part of this area; stroll among the formal beddings and large rockery running through the garden. Enjoy a view of the beach in the distance, or watch senior villagers bowling. Opened in 1904, posthumously marking Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1896, the garden features a number of benches and picnic tables. A major embarkation point for U.S. troops in 1944, today the gardens also house a D-Day memorial.
