York Museum Gardens
Over ten acres of stunning botanical gardens in the heart of York.
Located within the city centre and close to the Railway Station and other key attractions, the York Museum Gardens are an idyllic haven with an array of plant species, wildlife, and historical features to explore.
Established in the 1830’s by the Yorkshire Philosophical Society, the gardens are famed for their fantastic collection of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs set against the stunning backdrop of the medieval ruins of St. Mary’s Abbey.
Following recent redevelopment work, the gardens now extend to the back of York Art Gallery and include an Edible Wood and an Artists Garden with outdoor changing exhibitions.
The gardens are free to visit and we welcome all visitors to enjoy our beautiful space.
