Dane John Gardens


The city walls and an avenue of lime trees provide Dane John gardens a sense of enclosure and escape from the busy road and bustling shopping centre just a few yards away. There are excellent views over the city and the surrounding countryside from the top of the mound.

Within the gardens is a safe play area for children, a bandstand – a venue for traditional concerts throughout the summer – and a fountain which provides the focus for the shaded walk along the avenue of lime trees.
