Hill Close Gardens, Warwick

The only set of rare Victorian detached gardens and summerhouses open to visitors in England. Don't miss their annual family-friendly events ranging from Snowdrop Weekends to an autumnal Apple Day and Country Fair.

Warwick’s 16 beautiful and quirky Hill Close Gardens are the only surviving set of Victorian detached gardens open to the public in England.

Detached gardens have existed here since the 1830s and were once plentiful around UK towns, villages and cities. Discover their unique history and take a step back in time to see what the recreated gardens would have looked like in 1896.

In a scenic spot overlooking Warwick Racecourse, there are 16 individual plots left of the original 32 and some have brick built summerhouses where you can even find out about previous owners. Annual events include the always popular Snowdrop Weekend in February and the seasonal Apple Day & Country Fair in October, plus many more in-between.

Visitors can pop into the green Visitor’s Centre, transformed into a tearoom on weekends and bank holidays throughout summer. This space can also be hired for meetings, parties, social occasions and more. Hill Close Gardens runs guided tours through-out the year, the sale of both plants from our nursery and produce from the gardens. The team can also come to give off-site talks about the project.
