See the rare survivals of Victorian gardens, which were used by townsfolk who wanted to an escape from the busy town centre.
Wander along the old paths and discover 16 varied and individual plots, which have been reconstructed to reflect the personalities of their original owners.
Talk to the gardeners who tend the plots, and discover unusual types of fruit and vegetables from Victorian times, including soft fruit, pears, plums and apples.
Hill Close Gardens offers something different each season. In winter you can catch a glimpse of the pre 1900 snowdrops, see Victorian daffodils blossom in spring, and enjoy the sights of sweet peas and roses in the summer and a variety of chrysanthemums bursting with colour in the autumn.
After you have explored the gardens, you can rest inside the little brick summer houses and listen to birdsong while you gander your thoughts.
This summer enjoy Midsummer Jazz in the Gardens on the 18 June.
