The Garden

The grounds of the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability, located on a stunning elevated West Hill position in Putney since 1863 offers views over north west and south west London. Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown and esteemed landscape gardener Humphrey Repton both helped to design the estate, adding to the garden's historical importance and interest. Brown designed an open landscape of grass and trees, a lake and a home farm and his designs are still in evidence today. The grounds include an award-winning cloister garden and several specialist patient sensory gardens and in memory lavender.
