York Gate packs quite a punch for its one acre proportions. It never fails to intrigue its visitors with its fourteen garden rooms, linked by a series of clever vistas – all inspirational, and due to its realistic size, many elements give exciting ideas for potential in smaller gardens.
Our Tea Room provides lunches and afternoon teas, and our plant nursery gives you the opportunity to take a bit of York Gate home with you.
Allow one to two hours for a visit, but on fine days a whole afternoon can be lost taking in the magic of York Gate.
By visiting York Gate Garden, you are also supporting Perennial, the Gardeners Royal Benevolent Society, who have owned and cared for the garden since 1994.
We love one acre gem – but don’t just take our word for it. Have a look at our TripAdvisor reviews.
York Gate is now closed undergoing redevelopment works and will reopen on 1 April 2020. Therefore, we will not have a Christmas week or Snowdrop week this year.
