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.

Very nice way to spend a couple of hours. We punched in the SATNAV given on their website and ended up in some new buildings not far away. Follow the signs for racecourse, and go just inside the racecourse first entrance gate. Then turn right...More

Thank you for your review, we are very sorry to hear about your experience with a member of staff. We do try to welcome our visitors in an informative and helpful manor but it looks like on this occasion we fell short.

We both like gardens and are interested in social history so found our visit here very rewarding. I liken it to owning a beach hut nowadays....a bit of one upmanship really. But you can easily imagine the benefits for the owners and their excitement when...More

As allotment people really look forward to these gardens and they are great. Victorian gardens renovated over a number of years. Listed summer house. Lots of Apple and pear trees lovely flowers and a warm welcome on arrival. Shame it rained at the end.

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.
