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.

  • If you are visiting Warwick and appreciate a beautiful garden, then please don't leave without finding Mill Street. The garden is in a stunning location below the castle and leading down to the river....  more »
  • Although in the shadow of Warwick Castle, the delight of this garden comes entirely from its own charm. It's small - at a guess an acre in size - but a wonderful example of how "every prospect pleases...  more »
  • This garden is amazing. It is small but situated at the base of the castle with beautiful views. Wonderful planting and delightful vistas.Only costs two pounds to visit, a bargain.  more »

  • Lovely little quiet garden - worth strolling down to after a visit to the castle to get away from the tourists and kids!! Its £2.50 entry but it goes to charity which is nice!
  • I love garden's owners. They are very nice. It is worth paying 2.5 pound for entering here
  • Lovely place to relax for a while; however you can feel watched by tourists at the castle. Well worth the charity open fee
  • Beautiful gardens! A hidden gem with stunning view of the castle
  • Lovely spot to spend half an hour in the sunshine enjoying the view of the river and castle.
