Markwick Gardens, St. Leonards-on-Sea

Markwick Terrace and Markwick Gardens

Just around the corner of our house are Markwick Gardens, and whenever they’re organising an event for the public, we can hear the bands playing. We love it.

Markwick Terrace

Markwick Gardens were formed in the 1860s primarily for the use and pleasure of the residents of Markwick Terrace, which was built in the 1830-40s. At that time, the land was owned by the Eversfield Trust, which no longer exists and the gardens are now owned, privately, by the Eversfield Estates. (Markwick was the surname of one branch of Eversfield family descendants.)

Since the war the gardens have been run by a Committee of local residents as the Estate now takes no part in the running. Access to the gardens is by membership of the Markwick Gardens Association. Today they organised a dog show. We really enjoyed it.
