The Garden

The grounds of the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability, created in 1863 and located on a stunning elevated West Hill position in Putney, offer views over north west and south west London. Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown and esteemed landscape gardener Humphry 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, several specialist patient sensory gardens, and lavender bushes, many planted in memory of loved ones within a special memorial area.
