About:
We are delighted to announce that Yorkshires award-winning Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park is now open. Our 2020 season runs continuously until the 1st of November. Encouraging visitors to enjoy the many benefits of fresh air, nature and the great outdoors and.
Take advantage of our open spaces and enjoy over 45 acres of stunning gardens and woodland inspired by the Himalayas. Explore the woodland walks, amble over the bridges and along the lakeside paths and admire the spectacular views. It is home to the North’s largest collection of rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias, with nearly 20,000 plants.
Naomi Hutchinson, Marketing Manager at the gardens, says: “Thankfully, our attraction benefits from being in the great outdoors with plenty of space, so we want to encourage visitors to take a break from social media and world news, relax and enjoy the thousands of flowers in bloom - a sight I think all of us need right now.”
See our unique collection of over 80 contemporary sculptures with exiting new additions for 2020, set in the open-air gallery that sits in a tranquil valley. The gardens feature works by internationally renowned artists, all inspired by nature.

Actress Joanna Lumley is a Patron of the gardens and called them a ‘slice of paradise’: “My Kashmiri-born heart jumps with joy to think of its existence,” “Gardens are the greatest healers on earth, and as our stressful anxious lives tie us up in knots we may turn to the sweet silence of the great green earth for solace.”

Recently, the attraction has won national acclaim. Shortlisted for the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2020, the gardens featured on BBC Countryfile’s autumn special last year and were winners of the Yorkshire in Bloom Tourist Attraction Award in 2018 and 2019.
Although set in the great outdoors, we have implemented additional staff training and measures, in light of the current environment, to ensure key points such as the visitors’ entrance are safe.
We’re closely cohering to government guidelines and monitoring any changes in advice. The health, safety and welfare of our visitors is our highest priority.
Our aim is to remain a place where people can come and safely enjoy the fresh air in a restorative environment.”
The number of visitors per day will be limited and tickets must be purchased in advance online, for a specific day. Season ticket holders may visit anytime.

Please note the Tearoom will remain closed until further notice, and there are currently no takeaway facilities, please bring your own refreshments. The playground is currently closed as per government guidance.

We will have a selection of plants to purchase from our plant stand including Meconopsis (the Himalayan Blue poppy).

We are dog friendly, but they must be on a short lead.
