The Arthritis Research UK Garden reflects the personal journey and emotions of someone with arthritis, from a lack of understanding and confusion following diagnosis to a point where they are informed about the disease and are able to manage their pain.

This journey is represented across three key areas. The shaded, woodland Veiled Garden features a contemporary retreat and sculpture and a stepping stone pathway that leads to the Lucid Garden.  This open, formal area features a reflective pool with a focal sculpture and offers a sense of clarity.  In the slightly sunken Radiant Garden, exuberant, vibrant planting provides warmth, openness and confidence as the person with arthritis learns to manage their condition and keep active, doing the things they love.
