“Don't miss them”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

I am a frequent visitor to York but still love to go in these gardens.
The squirrels are rampant but fun to watch. The flower displays are always fabulous and grounds very well maintained. It is an ideal place for a picnic or just to stroll around and sit a while. The ruins are atmospheric and there is a museum to visit too. That is the only part i have not done as yet.

A peaceful oasis. Nice place to stroll with the dog (not forgetting to clean up after it if necessary!).
