One of Worthing’s best kept secrets – Highdown Gardens – has just been awarded a Certificate of Excellence from renowned website Trip Advisor after continually gathering top reviews from visitors.
Nestled amongst the idyllic South Downs, Highdown Gardens is a well kept local secret. Spread over 8.52 acres of land, the gardens offer wide open spaces for a range of activities which can be enjoyed by all. It’s a highly recommended place to visit particularly in spring or early summer, when the mix of wild flowers and landscaped garden offer a succession of colour and variety.
Councillor Clive Roberts, Executive Member for the Environment at Worthing Borough Council, said: “This is a truly fantastic addition to the already bulging trophy cabinet for Highdown Gardens, showing just how much visitors value the high levels of maintenance and care provided by the expert team.”
“The Garden has always had a lot to offer people of any age, so I for one am thrilled that it’s getting the recognition it deserves. Although it’s been a local secret for some time, I’m sure that this Certificate and the continually excellent reviews will help get the word out to the world!!”
Created within an old chalk pit, Highdown Gardens was never an ideal environment for growing flora, but, with the care lavished on it, it has become a flourishing garden where the rare mix of flowers and wildlife are described as ‘beautiful’ and ‘peaceful’. With picnic spots, carvery and café for afternoon tea, its a must return for locals and a must see for Worthing visitors.
It is this blend of stunning gardens, relaxing water features and tranquil environment which has inspired over 190 visitors to rate Highdown Gardens very good or excellent on TripAdvisor.
Averaging a rating of four and a half out of five stars, it is also listed number two of all things to do in Worthing.
Free to enjoy, the Gardens can be found at the top of Highdown Hill, accessed from the eastbound portion of the Littlehampton Road.
