Garden Nature / Park
Built in 1759, Helmsley Walled Garden is a beautiful five acre garden sitting beneath the imposing ruins of Helmsley Castle. Originally providing the vegetables, fruit and flowers for the table of Duncombe Park until just after World War 1, it fell into dereliction after it closed its doors for the final time in 1984. Restoration started in 1994 and since then the Garden has gone from strength to strength through the dedication and care of staff and volunteers.

Attractions include restored glasshouses full of colour, double herbaceous borders, a brand new clematis garden showcasing over 150 different varieties. Fruit trees clothe the walls and the grounds, including a special collection of Yorkshire apple cultivars and vegetable plots provide some of the ingredients for the delicious dishes in the Vinehouse Café.

  • This place is beautiful. The staff are lovely and the coffee and cake was perfect. If you are in the area stop by. And bring your dog!
  • Every time I visit the garden its beautiful and different, the long hot border is amazing and changes through the seasons. The collection of fruit trees is well worth a look too. Just sample the relaxing ambience of the place..you can have a break from life, relax and refresh, all in a single visit. Its a credit to everyone who works there. Oh and did I say that proceeds from the garden go to support Horticultural Therapy for people in the local community. So your entry money is well spent in more ways than one.
