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.

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.

Super little allotment gardens close to Warwick Town centre & the Racecourse. Nice place to chill out with a book. The cafe is only open part time, but a tea/coffee is always available

Reminded me of visiting my grandparents garden all those years ago. Old blue brick edging to the well tended borders, flowers and thriving allotment crops, amazing restored small summerhouses that you just want to sit in forever. It really is a fascinating glimpse on how...More

Tucked away between the centre of town and the racecourse, this gem is both a quiet garden retreat and one of the last surviving examples of the Victorian Garden. You don't have to be any good with gardening to appreciate the work and talent that...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.
