This adorable half-acre garden is wedged between the Avon and Warwick Castle.Mill Garden has been in the Measures family since 1938, and took on its design under the 60-year custodianship of Arthur Measures.It was a place of retirement for old warriors known as Brethren and some still remain today living in the buildings.The Brethren can be seen in their ceremonial uniform and offer tours of their building and gardens.Borrowing from French castle design, both are machicolated, while the Caesar’s Tower has a double parapet.After the 17th century the castle no longer had a military use and became a palatial residence for the powerful Earls of Warwick, with gardens designed by Capability Brown.We recommend the 9.40am train so you can make a nice long day of it.Birmingham is closer, and you can get the train directly from Moor Street, Birmingham or Snow Hill, Birmingham train stations to Warwick in 30 minutes.
On the opposite side is the mighty Caesar’s Tower, forming a very omantic boundary.

Warwick was founded by the sister of the Anglo-Saxon King Edward the Elder, and in 1088 became the seat of the Earls of Warwick.
Their castle is an icon of 14th-century military architecture but also a rip-roaring day out for families.
