Visit the gardens of the former home of the Terry family, part of York’s chocolate heritage.
Discover the five-acre garden with herbaceous borders, fragrant garden and sunny terrace overlooking the lawns and formal pond. With a rock garden and wildlife pond, glasshouse, and small kitchen garden, it’s not hard to imagine building a home here for a growing family.
The factory clock can be seen across the racecourse from the paddock orchard, one of a series of garden rooms, hidden away on the edge of the city. Family life and factory life were in some ways never far apart, in other ways, miles apart.
Drinks and light refreshments can be taken away and there are plenty of seat dotted around to have a moment. Otherwise bring a picnic, pick your spot, and relax on one of the lawns.
