  • Had a lovely visit to the restored gardens today. A very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. The gardens were of the time, peaceful and an oasis of calm. Very reasonable admission, tea and coffee refreshments at £1.50 nice not to be exploited. They also have a plant sale, we came away with three, all super healthy.
  • A lovely quiet and relaxed place to explore. Sixteen detached gardens together with details of the people renting them. They were some of the 32 created in 1840 to be rented to people living above their businesses in Warwick. Lovely well equipped visitor centre. Great place to visit.
  • Excellent value and very interesting history of the gardens. A very worthwhile hour and a half meandering through the individual plots and into the summer houses, some of which are listed. Tea room reasonably priced after your wander.
  • Very enjoyable visit to these lovely gardens . Very pleasant helpful gentleman at the ticket desk . Left our bikes here to walk in to town . Lots of interest both historical and horticultural . Nice tea room and lots of places to sit .
  • Unique historical set of gardens, interesting presentation room & good facilities. Looking good in March and will get better through the seasons. RHS partner garden and RHS featured this month.
