To maintain social distancing, we need to limit the numbers in the garden, so you’ll need to book your slot before you come. Payment will be taken on entry at the garden. The garden will be operating a cashless system, so please bring your card and use contactless payments where possible.

We kindly ask that you make your way around the garden during your allocated slot before visiting the cafe, gift shop and plant nursery in order for us to maintain social distancing.

Unfortunately we are unable to allow dogs or any other pets at York Gate, apart from assistance dogs.
