These gardens have been restored by volunteers and are beautifully laid out, an oasis of calm near the centre of Warwick with easy parking. Plenty of places to sit and relax if you want to and you can get coffee/tea and cake. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there were some good plants for sale. However, they don't... More

I can honestly say that a visit to these gardens is one that will bring surprise. I don't want to give too much away, as I really think it is a place that you need to discover for yourself, but I will say that it an effort worth making and one that you will want to make more than once.... More

Spent a lovely couple of hours wandering around these gardens that reminded me of the gardens I remember in the 1950s. It did take a while to find as it is not sign posted in Warwick, however it was worth it when we found it.

We went here with our 2 year old daughter and she loved running around and exploring the gardens. All the staff were lovely and very polite. Will definitely visit again.

If you like gardens, this is not to be missed. Hill Close Gardens were built in Victorian times to provide private gardens for people such as shopkeepers who lived above their premises. Many cities had these 'detached' gardens but few survive. These ones were nearly lost when the council started to buy them up for housing development but are now... More

Beautiful gardens lovingly tended by a dedicated team if volunteers. Well worth a deviation - park at the racecourse and enjoy peace and tranquility as the Victorians would have done.

This is a lovely place to visit not too expensive with a reasonable priced café (there is also a children's area in the corner with children's furniture and colouring and books) and gift shop/area. There are lots of plots to look round and most have a little shed or summerhouse to explore too. There are plants and produce for sale... More

Dear Slugsy Thank you for your comments. Just to clarify for future visitors: the parking outside the gardens is run by the WDC, it is not private parking for HCG visitors. However there is 2 hrs free parking as long as a ticket is put on your car from the Council's ticket machine. 2 hours does give you time to... More

Attended an evening party and were taken on a tour of the gardens, which is a must, very professional tour guide. These are a series of gardens that were bought, developed and cared for in Victorian times, as a way of escaping from the town of Warwick. They did fall into ruins in the 1980's but like the 'Lost Gardens... More

Dear Susan Thank you for your comments. Both the gardens and the Lammas Room for private parties and commercial bookings are so well regarded now. I had a private party here myself this week for a family celebration: the barbecue was set up outside the Centre, the room decked with bunting and our guests loved the opportunity of wandering round...
