Slessor Gardens and Discovery Walk: The city’s past and future are celebrated at this waterfront green space

Slessor Gardens is quickly becoming a popular venue for pop stars such as Little Mix, Olly Murs and, soon, Rita Ora.

The open green space can be used for multiple events and is a great spot to enjoy the city’s waterfront.
