York Gate Garden Leeds

York Gate Garden in Leeds

York Gate - one of Perennial's gardens

York Gate is a masterpiece. A Grade II national heritage garden inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement. Situated in the country village of Adel, Leeds, the garden was first created by the Spencer family in 1951 and entrusted to the charity Perennial in 1994 so that the garden could live on and continue to be enjoyed by the public.
A charming day out can be enjoyed here. A unique collection of garden rooms sit exquisitely within the one-acre site that enjoys the ancient Adel woods as its backdrop. It also features a café, sun terrace, heritage centre, gift shop, plant nursery and wildflower meadow.
It's no wonder this garden has been regarded as one of the best small gardens in the world.

  • Cafe - Enjoy wholesome homemade food reflecting the seasons and promoting local produce. The menu includes savoury delights, light lunches using handpicked produce from their vegetable garden, freshly prepared sandwiches, homemade cakes, and a selection of teas and freshly brewed coffee.
  • Gift Shop - The perfect place to find something special for the home and garden. They stock a large range of contemporary giftware, cards, stationery and gifts for gardeners.
