Well organised staff and facilities - beautiful series of 'garden rooms'. Easy walking. 'Friends scheme' is useful and good value for money. No car parking, allow ten minutes to walk through Adel Churchyard, also lovely.

What a find. A lovely garden set out with different areas. Lots of helpful volunteers and professional gardeners to ask questions. Tea room is a must visit. Car park is the other side of the church yard. Just a short walk.

Although residing relatively local to York Gate garden, I am ashamed to say I had actually never heard of it. That all changed when I read rather a lovely magazine article featuring it, which certainly whetted my appetite to pay it a visit. I parked...More
