Les Jardins Suspendus
65, rue du Fort 29, rue Albert Copieux 76620 LE HAVRE / Côte d'Albâtre
Located in the hills above Le Havre, the Jardins Suspendus (Hanging gardens), listed a Remarkable Garden and Botanic Garden since 2017, offer visitors an exceptional 25-acre setting. Located in the former bastions of a military fort, there are four themed gardens planted with species coming from all over the world. Linked by 8-metre high buttresses, the four gardens encircle the courtyard in which there are about 1.2 acres of greenhouses. Besides, the site offers a bird's eye view over the Seine Estuary and the spectacle of the cargo ships linking Le Havre to the rest of the world.
Located in an old fort whose bastions offer an exceptional view of the sea, the port and the lower town. The collection greenhouses are full of treasures: scented or aromatic plants, plants from all over the world, orchids, begonias ...
On the last Wednesday of the month, workshops are open to children and adults. A facilitator and a gardener welcome you on site.
The Hanging Gardens make up a landscaped ensemble that fits right into the imposing military setting of the fort in which they are located.
The central courtyard hosts the collection greenhouses, the trial gardens, the green carpet and the collection of scent plants while the high promenade offers visitors an exceptional landscape of the city and the Seine estuary, while connecting the four thematic gardens created in the old bastions.
A tea room, a Rose Garden and monumental works of art complete the ensemble for the enjoyment of the visitor.
