York Museum Gardens
The ten-acre botanical Museum Gardens, around the Yorkshire Museum, stretch from the River Ouse up to the back of York Art Galley, and from Marygate on one side to Museum Street on the other.
Established in the 1830s by the Yorkshire Philosophical Society, these gardens are famous for their fantastic collection of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs. Set in the stunning surroundings of the medieval ruins of St. Mary’s Abbey, this is a great space to meet friends and family and enjoy the peace and tranquillity that the gardens have to offer.
