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 sandstone urn is 2000 years old and forms a feature in the garden. At the other end of the path is a thatched gazebo.
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.
