Yorkshire, England’s largest county, stretches from the Pennines in the west to the rugged coast and sandy beaches of the east: a rural landscape of moors, dales, vales and rolling wolds.

Nestling on riverbanks lie many historic market towns, and in the deep valleys of the west and south others retain their 19th century industrial heritage of coal, steel and textiles. The wealth generated by these industries supported the many great estates, houses and gardens throughout the county. From Hull in the east, a complex network of canals weaves its way across the county, connecting cities to the sea and beyond.

The Victorian spa town of Harrogate with the RHS garden at Harlow Carr, or the historic city of York with a minster encircled by Roman walls, are both ideal centres from which to explore the gardens and cultural heritage of the county.

There are many NGS gardens to choose from, the majority of which enjoy visits from groups – Parcevall Hall in the west, Newby Hall near Ripon, Scampston Hall with a Piet Oudolf designed walled garden, and Burton Agnes Hall in the east are gardens for all seasons and are among the finest of all English gardens.
