Burnby Hall Gardens & Museum

About

Burnby Hall Gardens and Museum are situated in the charming town of Pocklington on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds.

The Gardens comprise Upper and Lower lakes set in nine acres of woodland and garden, and are home to a National Collection of over eighty varieties of Hardy Water Lily (Nymphaea). Carp and Roach are in both lakes in large numbers and can be hand fed by visitors.

There are walkways around both lakes, an ornamental bridge, a Victorian Garden, an Aviary Garden, an Edwardian Rock Garden, a Stumpery, and a newly planted Birch Walk.

The Gardens are seven times winners of the Yorkshire in Bloom Gold Award for Country Houses, Estates, Parks and Gardens (2010 to 2016).

The Stewart Museum houses a fascinating collection of artefacts collected by Major Stewart on eight world tours that undertaken between 1906 and 1926.

Events are held throughout the spring and summer, and include our annual Tulip Festival in May, Children’s Events on Wednesdays during the spring and Summer Holiday period, regular Sunday brass band concerts, and outdoor theatre events.

A café, gift shop and playground are situated on the site. All facilities are wheelchair and pushchair friendly.
