Set in the Vale of York, within easy reach of Harrogate and Leeds, Beningbrough Hall, Gallery Gardens offers sprawling lawns, herbaceous borders, woodland paths and a working kitchen garden. Each year contemporary art exhibitions fill the Saloon Galleries in the hall and during the winter months, art installations feature in the gardens and the stables. New for winter 2019 is Winter Wildlife in Print by Gerard Hobson. Fourteen sculptural scenes around the garden and a selling print exhibition in upstairs in the Hayloft.
Beningbrough's series of interlocking gardens each offer their own distinct seasonal interest – from wildlife havens to tranquil spots underneath the pergola, the opulence of a walled garden and colourful herbaceous borders buzzing with life - inspirational all year round. The garden is seeing something of a renaissance with designs by RHS Gold Award winter Andy Sturgeon. In 2020 a new Mediterranean Garden is under development. Step out on a longer walk through park and woodlands and beside the river with stunning views of the hall.
For families, children can let off steam in the wilderness play area and den zone or jump on a trike or bike to help little legs navigate the gardens. Complete a visit with a meal in the Walled Garden Restaurant or head to the new dog friendly Brew House for a lighter snack.
Winter weekends from 9 November 2019 – 1 March 2020, plus 26-29 December and New Year's Day for a festive day out.
Plus Tuesday 18 - Friday 21 February 2020 for the February half term.
Please note the Hall and Galleries will be closed from 4 November 2019 to 2 March 2020 for essential and extensive conservation work. The gardens, restaurant, shop and parkland are open as usual for visitors with a wide range of activities to enjoy. The Hall and Galleries will re-open on 3 March 2020.
