These gardens had been recommended by a friend of our daughter and were well worth a visit. Located near to the race course these old town gardens have been lovingly restored and even although we visited on a dull, drizzly day we were entranced by them . We were given information about them informally by one of the gardens and... More

Saw this on tripadvisor when planning our visit to Warwick, and wel worth the visit. Interesting history and a great story about why it is still here as it is. You go into some of the gardens which have sheds/summerhouses, when you go into or look through the window, it's as thought the Victorian gardener has just stepped out to... More

This is such an inspiring place. These Victorian era gardens could so easily have been lost to developers or neglect. One can now see and enjoy the gardens saved by volunteers and run by a community trust. Each of the plots has a distinctive character. The cafe has a lovely outlook and a homely feel. There Is an active educational... More

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
