Visitors are welcomed to the start of the main season at Hill Close with reminders of Victorian Easter celebrations all around the gardens. They will find themed displays in the Tearoom and in several of the lovely brick built summerhouses. Copies of Victorian Easter cards contributed by the V&A Museum, the history of Easter eggs provided by Cadbury, Victorian Easter baking recipes complete with ingredients, and a Victorian style sweet shop all bring to life the way Victorians enjoyed Easter. In amongst the conventional items are some surprising and rather odd examples.
Hill Close Gardens, overlooking Warwick racecourse, is the perfect setting for Easter celebrations. Heritage daffodils, as well as primroses, cowslips and other spring flowers are dotted around the sixteen individual plots that make up these unique restored gardens. From March 31st – April 2nd, we will be paying tribute to the Victorian heritage of the gardens.
Refreshments will be served in our Tearoom overlooking the gardens. There is also a large greenhouse and plant sales area.
