Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Yorkshire / North Yorkshire / Helmsley / Helmsley Walled Garden
Built in 1759, Helmsley Walled Garden is a beautiful five acre garden sitting beneath the imposing ruins of Helmsley Castle. Originally providing the vegetables, fruit and flowers for the table of Duncombe Park until just after World War 1, it fell into dereliction after it closed its doors for the final time in 1984. Restoration started in 1994 and since then the Garden has gone from strength to strength through the dedication and care of staff and volunteers. Attractions include restored glasshouses full of color, double herbaceous borders, a brand new clematis garden showcasing over 150 different varieties. Hours change seasonally so please check website for all up-to-date information.

Helmsley Walled Garden Reviews
Appreciate that this wasn't the best time of year to visit but disappointed as was looking a bit neglected. New pricing is likely to discourage visitors, particularly those living in the North... more »
It is a pleasant enough walk around the garden if it is a nice day but personally I was somewhat underwhelmed and thought it was expensive in comparison to other places with not much to see. more »
Lovely, peaceful garden. Fantastic charity working hard to promote the healing benefits of gardening. Beautiful setting with views of the castle. I could sit there all day
Lovely location. Would have been 5 except food service is a big slow, 45 min wait for a sandwich. Perhaps need bigger prep area and 1 of 2 more staff?
