“Oasis in York”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Wonderful place to sit and read, to meet friends for a stroll or to enjoy a quiet picnic. Make sure you take enough food for the surprisingly tame squirrels though!

“Beautiful would be lovely in the summer”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Nice to stroll round would be even better in the summer to have a picnic in. There are lots of squirrels in the garden that seem very friendly and came very close to the children. I am sure if you had some nuts they would come even closer.

“lovely walk”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We used this walk from our guest house as it was nicer that walking down the main road it was a short cut for us to visit the wheel near the railway station

“Squirrels”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

These gardens are beautiful all year round to sit or walk. With squirrels and birds all over, whether to take pictures ontop of the lovely ruins or abundance of trees and bushes spread aground. The museum holds historic artifacts of interest. There are plenty of benches and grass to sit. But no toilet facilities or cafe. Although they are not far from a costa coffee shop.
