Carpet and Seafront Gardens

Located by the pier these gardens are the world famous centrepiece of Eastbourne's elegant seafront. Traditional bedding is used to create stunning floral patterns for spring and summer. Spring displays use brightly coloured tulips, pansies and wallflowers. Summer planting includes begonias, petunias, geraniums and other favourites.

During the summer special beds are also planted in geometric patterns in a 'carpet bedding' technique first established by the Victorians. One bed at the west end of the main garden usually has a special theme.  This is planted in June and remains until the autumn.
