Facing south from Brighthelm, our garden is one of the few accessible green spaces right in the middle of the city, providing a welcome contrast to the busy streets all around. It is currently mainly grassed and has a low key character in keeping with its historic use as a place of rest and quiet contemplation.
The gardens have many shrubs and some mature trees . Squirrels, birds and the occasional fox also make good use of the open space.The Brighthelm Trustees are committed to an ongoing programme of improvement in the gardens and encourage visitors to use them.
Information about the gravestones, compiled by the Brighton Mortiquarian is kept in a folder at Reception and is available to borrow.
The garden is bounded by Grade II listed cast iron railings on the Queens Road side and a Victorian wall on the Church Street side.
