Warwick Castle is set within 64 acres of landscaped gardens first mentioned in 1576 during the visit of Queen Elizabeth I. In the 1750’s the gardens were transformed by Capability Brown one of the greatest British landscape gardeners. It is believed that this was his first independent castle project. The island in the River Avon, where the jousting and trebuchet firing take place, was the home of exotic animals in the 1890’s which even included a baby Elephant! Now the gardens are roamed by more than 20 beautiful peacocks. The gardens include a pond and fountain, hedges, topiary and beautiful trees. It is also where you find the Conservatory, built in 1786 and a restored Victorial Mill and Engine House.
Once you have roamed the gardens why not indulge at The Coach House and enjoy a scrumptious afternoon cream tea with homemade sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam, a selection of mini cakes and tarts served with a pot of tea for two.
