Mill Gardens: At the bottom of Mill Street is the Mill Garden, famed for the quality of its planting in an unbelievable setting. It was created over a period of sixty years by the late Arthur Measures, who made it a personal expression of his love of plants. This 1/3 acre informal cottage garden lies in a superb setting beneath the walls of Warwick Castle beside the River Avon. On one side are the river and the ruin of the mediaeval bridge, whose roadway once led across where there are now lawns and flowers, in a lucky year, swans nest in its shelter and on the other side Caesars Tower looms overhead. The stone walls of the castle give one of the most dramatic backdrops for any garden.

It is a garden of winding paths through a delightful series of plantings that lead around each corner to dramatic views of the castle, mediaeval bridge, working castle mill and the river. It is a garden of great tranquillity and charm.
