Positioned at a stunning location on a promontory, the Nothe Peninsula, overlooking both Weymouth and Portland harbours, these informal gardens are one of the most beautiful the town has to offer.
The vast array of choice trees, established shrub beds and winding paths that lead down to sheltered slopes and picnic areas are ideal for walkers, sun bathers and families. The large grassed area is great for ball games while, at the foot of the gardens, the seashore is a fun place for children to go crabbing in the rock pools.
There is parking and picnic tables and there is a small cafe, The Nothe Chalet at the entrance to the gardens that does light snacks and drinks. During the summer season a kiosk sells drinks and ice creams over looking Newton’s Cove.
