A very tranquil garden with seating from which to view the cathedral, reflect and contemplate. Seek it out, you won't be disappointing. Then walk under the buttresses to the West entrance of the cathedral.

Have passed this small garden previously and didn't know if it was a private garden. The combination of the brick wall, railings, water and pretty section of garden visible behind is very appealing.

Well worth a visit, a lovely calm tranquil spot, where you can see the flowers bloom, and just take a step back, and chill. Recommended

A garden run by volunteers, this is a tranquil place to wander or sit. There are seats in the sun or shade.

The Dean Garnier garden is in the Inner Close of Winchester Cathedral. It's a medieval garden lovingly maintained by volunteers. It's free to enter and a calming addition to a visit to the Cathedral. A nice diversion, especially on a sunny day.
