Kemptown Secret Garden – Brighton, England - Atlas Obscura

Kemptown Secret Garden

A hidden sculpture garden tucked within the middle of Brighton.  


The Kemptown Secret Garden started life as No.32 Sussex Square. It was the residence of Lawrence Peel, brother of Prime Minister Robert Peel, in 1840. Now, however, the plot of land is home to a quaint sculpture garden hidden in the center of Brighton.

The garden is also known as the Anthony Dale Sculpture Foundation. The foundation was started by Yvonne Dale, wife of then-garden owner Anthony. After Anthony died, Yvonne opened the garden so it could serve the community and promote the craft of sculpture.

Within the tiny garden, you can find beautiful flowers and wildlife that complement the sculptures. These, combined with the sound of water, make you feel as though you’re a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city just outside. 

Know Before You Go

The garden is only open on select days, so it is best to check the website directly. It's free to enter and you can park in Lidl.
