The Garden

The grounds of the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability - located on a stunning elevated West Hill position in Putney since 1863 - afford views over north west and south west London. Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown and esteemed landscape gardener Humphrey Repton both had a hand in designing 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.
