4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
The Mill Garden is a private garden adjacent to Warwick Castle measuring half an acre open to the public and situated on the bank of the River Avon in Warwick, Warwickshire, England. It is owned by Julia Measures, whose family has owned the gardens since 1938 and whose father Arthur worked on it for 60 years. Its informal planting to highlight picturesque river views has made this garden renowned among the United Kingdom's garden enthusiasts. The stone bridge visible from the garden once carried most of the traffic to Warwick over the River Avon but the bridge now lies in ruins. When the castle was being constructed the garden was often used as a stonemasons yard. It is not uncommon to see swans nesting near the garden.

  • Beautiful gardens, took many pictures and is a romantic place to go to with partner overlooking the vast river and castle set in the back. Mill garden heavily contributes towards various charites. Highly recommend going.
  • Lovely little garden. It's in the surrounding ground of the castle and has lovely views. Nice variety of plants and some ice benches to sit on and enjoy the views. Perfect place to sit down and enjoy your packed lunch, perhaps. Also the staff are friendly and were more than happy to let us leave and return etc. Only downside is that it's a little small. But that makes it quite quaint. See the photo-sphere I took by dragging the little orange google street view man onto the photo-spot in the garden.
  • Pretty, peaceful, on the river. Great views of the castle. An Orange Blossom that smelled amazing. We also saw a Kingfisher!
  • Very nice. If you visit the castle, take the time to visit mill hadron too.
  • A real alternative to the overpriced Warwick castle. A great view if the castle at 2,5£ and also a fine garden a tea. Plus a weir.
