Pageant Gardens, Warwick
Pageant Gardens, Warwick
This peaceful public garden in the centre of Warwick was once the private garden of No.4 Jury Street, the stuccoed house to the right, now known as Pageant House. The garden was assembled from the 1850s onwards from a mosaic of smaller properties by members of the Greenway family. The gabled brick building, centre, is the rear of the Court House, then the offices of the Borough Council and today occupied by the Town Council and Tourist Information. Pageant House with its garden was bought with the proceeds of the trendsetting Warwick Pageant of 1906 and presented to the town as additional office accommodation. The gardens were opened in 1908 as the town's first publicly-owned open space. They are dominated by a massive old sweet chestnut (Castanea sativa, coming into flower), left. Beyond the tree is the arched entrance from Castle Street. The panels by the path mark the exit from the Marriage Room of the Registry Office in Pageant House. On Saturdays especially the gardens are thronged with wedding parties and all a-buzz.
