The Carpet Gardens provide one of the most enduring and striking images of Eastbourne. These world famous Gardens have been established as the centrepiece of Eastbourne's seafront gardens since Victorian times and are renowned for their carpet bedding and floral sculptures.

The Carpet Gardens are designed by Eastbourne Borough Coucil's Parks & Gardens Division. Every year there are two distinct designs of carpet bedding, Spring and Summer, as well as a new floral sculpture.

The Carpet Gardens are located next to the Pier and Eastbourne's extensive seafront gardens extend either side of them, containing hundreds of different plants from colourful rock garden plants to exotic tropical New Zealand species. The seafront gardens are maintained a team of 10 experts from the Council's contractors, Brophy.

Lush, colourful sub-tropical plantations can be found around the seafront lawns at the Wish Tower Slopes. Enjoy the sheltered garden, within the Wish Tower moat, which has been filled with aromatic foliage and scented flowers including a traditional rose garden.

Closer to the beach, rock gardens are re-stocked with around 12,000 plants every year.
