Helmsley Walled Garden

Helmsley Walled Garden

Details

We warmly welcome groups and coach parties to the Garden and for groups of more than fifteen people we offer discounted rates of entry. If you would like to discover even more on your visit then we can arrange a guided tour with one of our guides, these tours last around one hour.

We recommend allocating at least two hours to visit the Walled Garden. This will allow you to both fully enjoy all that the Garden has to offer as well as time to relax over refreshments in The Vine House Café. Depending on the time of your visit, the Vine House Café can serve you morning coffee, a light lunch or afternoon tea. There is always a vegetarian dish on the ever changing seasonally inspired menu. If you have any particular dietary needs please let the café team know and they will advise on ingredients used in the dishes on the menu. Contact them directly by emailing Vinehousehelmsley@hotmail.com.

We are fully accessible for disabled visitors. We also have two manual wheelchairs available for visitors to use. Please book these in advance of your visit so we can be sure they are available.

We have no coach parking facilities on site but the Cleveland Way Car Park has free coach parking available and is situated less than five minutes’ walk from the garden entrance.

For further information on group bookings, please see the website.
