About Us

The gardens, restaurant, play area, shop and toilets are open. The hall and galleries are currently closed for ongoing conservation work. Things are a little different in winter, visit the website for the most up to date information ahead of your visit.

Relax in the walled garden or stroll among glorious borders with over 8 acres to explore, now cared for by the National Trust. The year starts with the arrival of a carpet of colour along the ha-ha walk with the thousands of spring bulbs planted in 2016, quickly followed by blossom from over 90 different varieties of fruit trees and stunning tulips among the borders and west formal. Take a seat in the recently installed Pergola complete with white wisteria. Come high summer, the borders are bursting with colour right into autumn with dahlias looking striking through to the first frosts. Harvest time is worth returning for to see how the produce has grown, we don't like to boast but are pretty sure we grow some of York's biggest pumpkins. The wilderness play area and den zone are popular with families. The gardens are perfect for your own adventure and if you're looking for inspiration you can tick off many of the '50 things to do before you're 11 3/4' play list. Otherwise take your ball or kites to the large south lawn and literally kick back with a picnic and enjoy time together.

The walled garden restaurant and brew house (open on our busiest days) offer a range of hot, home-cooked meals, light lunches, snacks and refreshments. The shop in the stables has a large selection of local items from regionally suppliers and craftspeople. Many other lines are unique to the National Trust and their designs are inspired by some of the places the charity looks after.

If you want a longer walk, the gardens are surrounded by 380 acres of parkland where the tenant farmer's cattle graze. There are three walks available from 20 minutes to two hours taking in secluded woodlands, carpeted with bluebells in late spring, and along the riverside with the chance of spotting a kingfisher darting past.

Here are the opening times - booking no longer needed to visit Beningbrough.
