Open all the time
The beautiful land where the Helen Garden now sits has passed through the hands of several private owners including The Duke of Devonshire, the Grand Hotel and finally Mrs. Helen Reid Stewart Hornby Lewis after whom the garden is named. Soon after Helen’s death in 1930 the land was passed to the council, who landscaped and opened the garden to the public in 1935. A lovely place to walk the dog in Eastbourne, or to sit and enjoy the sunshine on one of the many benches.

We at Eastbourne Guide thoroughly enjoy the mini golf at Eastbourn's Helen Gardens and play there regularly. The golfing greens are much larger than a traditional concrete or carpeted mini-putt, but the the mini golf on offer isnt quite 'pitch and putt' either, but somewhere in between. Think of it as a long distance putting, or mega mini golf in Eastbourne. It takes roughly one hour to complete all 18 holes.
