The Arthritis Research UK Garden has been inspired by the great Renaissance gardens of Italy, capturing the drama, formality and beauty of the historic gardens at Villa Lante and Villa d’Este.

The garden’s Renaissance theme was devised by Arthritis Research UK to symbolise its own ‘rebirth’ with a new brand and future goals as it marks its 75th anniversary.

Using water as a central theme, the garden incorporates three spectacular water features - a fountain seat, a water cascade and a still mirror pool - set among formal Mediterranean planting, with five majestic cypress trees providing a stunning backdrop.
