Overview
More
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 tearoom 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.

Nice little gardens hidden at the back of Warwick race course. A lot of history involved with them on how they came about. Large car park and convenient to walk into Warwick town. Quite interesting, although a little disappointed, can appreciate its done by volunteers...More

Lots of colourful flowers to see at the moment and the Collection of asters are only just beginning to show to lengthen the season. The gardens are open 11-5 every day until October (then only open weekdays until April)

An interesting garden with a very good tea room. You keep coming upon unexpected areas. The restoration work is supreme.

We visited with our family when the gardens were open under the National Gardens scheme. Each garden is different, but it is clear that they are all loved by their current owners. Some also exhibit old gardening tools from days gone by. It was fascinating...More

Hello, unfortunately our Tearoom serves cakes and small snacks. We do have gluten free / vegetarian cakes and snacks. But we don't serve hot meals. Thank you for your query.
