On foot
The route from Warwick’s Market Square is down Market Street and across Bowling Green Street. Market Street is also the stop for visitors arriving by bus. From the bus station, cross the road at the pedestrian crossing towards the multi-storey car park (known as the “Linen Street car park”). At the corner of the car park turn left down Linen Street. At the very bottom of Linen Street turn left again and walk along the edge of the racecourse till you reach the gates of the Gardens which are on your left immediately after the car park ticket dispensing machine.

By train
From Warwick station walk through Priory Park and past St Mary’s Church to Market Square and the route as above.

By bike
National Cycling Network Route 41 (the Lias Line) from Stratford-upon-Avon to Rugby passes the Gardens entrance. There is parking for bikes inside.

Disabled access is from the Racecourse entrance. Most of the Gardens is accessible by wheelchair. However, some paths are steep and narrow in places. Please exercise appropriate care.

Group bookings
Groups of 10 and over can visit the gardens at any time throughout the year for guided tours. The charge is £9.50 a head to include entrance, a guide and tea and cake in the Centre. This is an opportunity to learn about the history and restoration of the gardens with their rich variety of Victorian fruit and flowers, the design and building of the sustainable Hill Close Centre.
