Trip Adviser Review : An Oasis in Warwick This is a wonderful place, hidden away in Warwick, entrance just off a car park by the racecourse, you wonder if you are in the right place! The gentleman behind the reception was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the gardens. There was a good sized cafeteria where during the week you can help yourself to tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, crisps etc., everything is priced and you return to reception to pay. At weekends there is a proper service. The cafeteria looks out on to the gardens, an...

Trip Adviser Review: Friendly Staff & Inspiring Gardens I have been to visit these gorgeous gardens with my mother on a number of occasions and every time I have been greeted with a big friendly smile, a helpful mapped guide and of course, a taste of the scrumptious tea and cake for afters! The gardens are an inspiration and the tiny summerhouses are filled with history and wonderment. It feels like a tiny haven and a step back in time once you walk into the little segmented allotments. The staff are happy to answer questions about the p...

Trip Adviser review : A 'Gem' in the heart of Warwick. Friendly welcome A friendly and informative welcome before exploring these set of gardens. The cafe is open on weekends throughout the summer but they offer hot & cold drinks during the week along with small snacks. This suited us and we found a nice secluded seat in one of the gardens to have a our drinks. Lots of fruit trees and well maintained gardens that take you back to a time gone by. All credit to all involved. If we lived closer we would become members.

An Afternoon Delight! If you haven't already visited these fabulous gardens, I would urge you to do so. You can almost feel the love with which they've been returned to their former glory, giving a living glimpse into times gone by and providing a much needed haven for rare plants and insects. Each garden is unique, abundances of fruit trees, and vegetables harmonize perfectly with striking cutting flowers which at first seem odd bed fellows. Dilapidated sheds, summer houses and animal shelters have been painstakingly restored and there's...

Wow 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.

A living time-capsule 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 gardens used to look... great cafe, plants and crops for sale with excellent parking (free for 2 hours) at the racecourse, and a very short walk through the gardens takes you right into the centre of Warwick. A real hidden gem, loved it. Events throughou...

Beautiful Victorian Gardens This is the third time I have been to these beautiful gardens but I took my friend of 86 today and she thought they were wonderful. So much hard work and passion has gone in to saving these amazing gardens. It takes you back in time to your childhood with all the lovely flowers and fruit trees and such a peaceful place to sit. There is 2 hours free parking at the racecorse carpark which is right by the gardens entrance, making it very easy to get to. This is a must for anyone visiting Warwick.

Enchanting, I loved it, if I was local I would be there all the time. Thank goodness this was saved from the bulldozers and lovingly restored by local volunteers - and what a job they have done! The remaining Victorian gardens have been nursed back to their former splendour and listed summerhouses restored to former glory. We visited in July when the flowers are still possibly at their best and it was wonderful. It was like visiting a series of rooms, each with their own charm and sense of tranquillity. Simply wonderful, a must-see for any gar...

Beautiful example of Victorian Gardens. 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 has gone into creating these gardens. There is a point near the middle where you can easily forget you are just a few metres from a busy town. Check the website for times and prices, and keep an eye out for shows and events held throughout the year. If drivi...
