The hospital opened as the Oxford Lunatic Asylum in July 1826 and subsequently (but no longer) was named the Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum and then the Warneford Lunatic Asylum. It was designed by Richard Ingleman (1777–1838) and built of Headington stone. The name commemorates the philanthropist Samuel Wilson Warneford.
The hospital is in the suburb of Headington, east of Oxford city centre. It is located on Warneford Lane, which runs between Morrell Avenue and Old Road. It was the first hospital to be based in east Oxford. Almost all of the major Oxford hospitals are now based in Headington.
