If you go to Duncombe Park then I would suggest doing it on a Bank Holiday when the house was open and making sure that you get a combination ticket for the Bird of Prey centre and the gardens otherwise if you do just the Gardens then you might be disappointed as there isn't a lot to look at.

Fabulous and free! Great views, stunning scenery, beautiful building. You have to pay to see the birds of prey. Walk by the river and stroll round the grounds. Fabulous in any season we have seen them all!

As my wife and I were staying at The Black Swan in Helmsley and didn't want to drive anywhere, we walked up to Duncombe Park quite early after breakfast. Although access to the stately house wasn't available (it's still a private home and only open certain Bank Holidays) the grounds were absolutely beautiful and were immaculately tended. We didn't bother... More

There is a vast expanse of aviaries and a great variety of birds to see. Unfortunately when we went, the heavens opened! However the bird handler gave us a small indoor demonstration of a Harris Hawk and a burrowing owl (so cute!). He was very knowledgeable about the birds (as you may expect), but his explanations meant I came away... More

Marked down because, after paying and expecting a garden, there really is not much to explore. The long drive leading up to the car park at Duncombe has some pretty impressive potholes so it your car is low slung, do be careful. The house at Duncombe is not open to the public. Occasionally they have a craft or Christmas fair,... More
