We walked through the gardens to get to the sea front from the top and came back via the cabke car. There are quite a few steps so be aware but there may be an alternative path. The setting is really pretty and peaceful.

No. The Grand is in the town, the Italian Gardens are on the South Cliff. Cross the Spa bridge and you're on the South Cliff, 400ms and you'll find the Gardens on the left. Enjoy
