Glorious gardens

Yorkshire is well known for its rolling green hills and glorious countryside, but we have some glorious gardens to enjoy too. Discover gardens that you can explore all year round.

Floral displays

You'll find floral displays in places you might not expect them. Spot knapweed, clover and harebells in amongst some of our less formal gardens as well as our woodlands, parklands and meadows.

From plot to plate

Historically, many of our houses and gardens grew their own produce for use in the kitchen. Today, it's no different. Come and see our kitchen gardens before sampling their goodness in our cafes.

What we do

The conservation team at Nostell Priory have started their own blog, all about what they get up to behind the scenes to keep the place looking spick and span for visitors.

Did you know...?

In our places in Yorkshire, we look after well over 16,000 objects in our precious historical collections. You can sift through them over at our online collections database.

Wet weather?

Never mind - we're sure to have something for you to get up to, with events to suit all the family every weekend.
