  • Wow!!! This is a wonderful hidden gem of a spot. The gardens are stunning and there is so much to see. Spent a fabulous few hours wondering round and photographing the beautiful plants and flowers. Can't imagine why we haven't visited before, but we will certainly be visiting again. Didn't get to check out the cafe unfortunately but everything else is First class.
  • not well layed out but a real plantsmans garden.
  • Waste of time going all plants were covered in flies.
  • Extensive garden areas with various garden themes.Perfect place to visit on a sunny day.If you love plants you should allow 2 to 3 hours to look around .
  • Excellent! Very pleasant and friendly staff, exceptionally clean facilities, very tasty food - and, almost goes without saying, superb gardens with easy access for any disabled visitors.

Where to stay in York

Despite York’s relatively small size, accommodations come in a variety of styles. You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses. For that ultimate urban experience, consider staying in the historical city center. This part of town is packed with options for every taste and budget, all close to York’s main attractions, as well as its main transportation systems. Just a short walk from the city center, family-run guesthouses in quiet neighborhoods offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains. Alternatively, the surrounding countryside is filled with charming private homes eager to welcome guests.
