Hill Close Gardens are a rare example of victorian detached leisure/pleasure gardens. Once used by townsfolk who lived above their businesses and wanted to escape from the crowded town centre. Owners and tenants came here after work or on Sundays to tend their flowers, fruit and vegetables or to relax. These gardens have been fully restored to their original charm and boasts a visitor centre that can be hired out and is used as a cafe on weekends and bank holidays through the summer months. The gardens are open all year during weekdays. Plant / produce / gift sales. Special events are put on throughout the year.

This is a hidden treasure. Such an interesting place. There is some walking uphill but all the gardens are fascinating. Well worth the reasonable entrance price but you do need good weather as it is all basically outside. These gardens - which were originally owned or rented by tradespeople who lived in Warwick are something I never knew existed and... More

We first visited Hill Close Gardens earlier this year as part of an organised Inner Wheel party and found it fascinatingly delightful - so much so that we've now added it to our list of 'Must Do' places to go whenever we have visitors. This was confirmed last week when our latest visitors found it equally delightful and interesting. Well... More

We went with an open mind and were very pleasantly surprised how well maintained the gardens were we loved the summer houses and all the old fashioned tools inside a step back in time to a Victorian way of gardening.

Lots of what used to be individual gardens brough together - so lots of "garden rooms" to explore. Some good ideas and good plants. Gllass houses, plants for sale, small case.

A wonderful find right on the edge of Warwick. The history of the place is fascinating and the individual plots are a delight. We'll be back.

Lovely garden maintained by volunteers. We visited during a Christmas event which was beautifully organised. Individual gardens all differently laid out. Nice and tranquil.

I love it so much here that I've been almost every week this summer as a garden volunteer. There is always a new delight to find among the 16 separate gardens, whatever the season.

At all times of the year this is a great space for peaceful reflection. Every garden is well looked after and it's great to support this charity. Lovely way to understand the history of Warwick.
