The garden is such an awesome place! Nice place to have a chat and picnic. The ruins of the St Mary's Abbey, the Hospitium and King's Manor are great places to visit as they are within the area.

Really nice relaxing gardens, walked through them as a short cut into the city center, beautiful ruins and fun to feed the squirrels, would be lovely in summer to have a picnic lunch.

A nice get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Walked through these gardens many times getting from the hotel to the city centre. Great for people watching and roaming around through the ruins.

Great to watch the squirrels and read the various name and info tags on the trees and the historical remains. This is a great mix of a place, right by the river. Plenty of places to sit and watch the world go by. Lots of history. Many different plant and tree varieties. An interesting, picturesque and peaceful refuge from the busy city.

Great place to visit particularly for picnics in the summer! Pop in to the Yorkshire Museum and explore the ruins.
