Not only does Battery Gardens boast one of the most panoramic views in the bay, it is also a Scheduled Monument. As far back as the 1780s the area was used for military training; most significantly it was a World War II Coastal Defence Battery, with up to 250 soldiers based there. Many of the structures and emplacements from this period are still in existence.
Battery Gardens is not a cultivated park, but more a natural landscape of trees, shrubs and grass. At the top area of the grounds, wild orchids and bluebells flourish. The gardens are known as the 'Grandstand of Torbay', due to the fantastic views across the area - a great location to watch the many nautical events throughout the season. Entry to the park is free and it is open daily all year round. The gardens are accessible by public transport, but wheelchair access is limited.
The Battery Heritage Education Centre & Museum is open every Monday and Friday from 2.00pm – 4.00pm and Sundays during the summer from 2.00pm – 4.00pm.
