York Gate: re-opened

by Judith Ladley

York Gate

York Gate garden, our well-known local visitor attraction, is once again open to the public following its winter closure and subsequent enforced shut down due to Covid 19.   A great deal of work has been carried out during the closure, mainly on the adjacent property which is now owned by Perennial.  A larger refreshment area has been added, with indoor and outdoor seating; the plant sales section has been moved and is well stocked with a good selection and visitor parking is now available on site, plus an overflow across the road from York Gate.  The original layout of York Gate remains the same, with the exception of a re-vamp of Sybil’s garden which now holds an interesting selection of exotics.

Currently on-line booking is required as visitor numbers are limited due to social distancing.  There is a one-way route around the garden, well marked with red wooden arrows.  Booking can be accessed from the York Gate Garden website.  The garden and shop open at 11am and close at 4.30pm.  Openings are from Wednesday through to Sunday, with the garden closing on 1st November, but apart from Christmas the café and shop and open all year.
