Masterís Garden, Lord Leycester Hospital, Warwick


A small garden tucked away behind the Lord Leycester Hospital


This small garden is tucked away behind the lovely C14th timber frame Lord Leycester Hospital was beautifully restored in the 1990s by a previous masterís wife who was a garden historian, using records of the plot dating back to the C17th. 

The garden is reached down a narrow passageway and past the Millenium Knot garden with its statue of the Bear with a Ragged Staff.

The garden is divided up by low trimmed hedges, forming smaller gardens within the main gardens.

The garden is open from Easter to the end of September, except Mondays, from 10-4. Entry just to the garden is £2 and all the money goes towards the upkeep of the gardens and the Lord Leycester hospital. In some ways there isnít a lot to see compared with other gardens in Warwick, like Mill Garden and Hill Close Gardens, but it is a pleasant place to just sit and relax. If you want a drink, there is the  Brethrenís Kitchen.  The post code is CV 34 4BH and the grid reference is SP 280647.
