Helmsley Walled Garden

Built in 1759, Helmsley Walled Garden sits beneath the imposing ruins of Helmsley Castle. It was the Kitchen Garden of Duncombe Park until just after World War 1 when it was leased as market garden. Abandoned after it closed its doors for the final time in 1984, it fell into dereliction. Restoration started in 1994 and since then the Garden has gone from strength to strength through the dedication and care of staff and volunteers.

Visitors can now enjoy restored glasshouses full of colour, a double herbaceous Hot Border running the length of the Garden or sit and enjoy the tranquillity of the Garden of Contemplation. A Clematis Garden showcases over 100 different clematis varieties and there are many more garden rooms to discover.

Vegetables and fruit from the Garden go into the kitchen of the Vine House Café. Visitors sit beneath Victorian vine cultivars to enjoy soups, salads and pasta as well as delicious cakes and desserts.

The Plant Centre sells lots of the plants visitors see in the garden.  The Garden shop sells a range of useful garden sundries as well  as cards, jams, chutneys and biscuits. Other items available include a range of heritage tools and garden artefacts.

There is full wheelchair access to the Garden and Café. Toilets and disabled toilets available. Dogs are welcome on leads.
