From a World Heritage Site to a city centre townhouse with a 2000-year history, there’s a great deal to discover with the National Trust in York and North Yorkshire.

Explore gardens of every size, spend an afternoon at the former home of the Terry family – part of York’s chocolate heritage. See how the seasons change with a selection of mature gardens, just a short drive from the city. Seek out long reaching vista, borrowing Abbeys as focal points or check out what’s ready to be harvested. Stroll among herbaceous borders, find a bench or the perfect picnic spot on the lawns.

Space for all the family to enjoy time together, including your dogs – no need to leave them behind. Head inside for changing art exhibitions, stories of history and the people who have shaped the places we see today.

Every time you visit, stay in a unique holiday let or buy from the shops and cafés, you support the conservation work of the charity. This helps to look after beautiful places around York for now and tomorrow – thank you.
