Ambrose Place Back Gardens, Richmond Rd, Worthing, West Sussex, BN11 1PZ
The highly acclaimed back gardens of Ambrose Place have been described as a ‘horticultural phenomenon’, and have a rich panoply of styles, plantings and layouts. Behind a classic Regency terrace, itself the architectural jewel of Worthing, the gardens draw inspiration from such exotic diversity as Morocco, Provence and the Alhambra to the more traditional sources of the English cottage and Victorian gardens.
