Breezy Knees Gardens, York, North Yorkshire

A riot of colour from May to September in 20 acres of extensive gardens.
Breezy Knees Gardens, York, North Yorkshire

Come and see why Monty Don on Gardener’s World described Breezy Knees as “a modern garden created on the grandest of scales, an extraordinary achievement and beautiful.”

Explore sweeping herbaceous borders, a cottage garden, annual meadows, a lake and arboretum, rock garden, fountains, a fragrant rose garden, special May, June and September gardens and much more.

The gardens remain packed full of colour throughout summer, supplemented by seasonal highlights, such as irises in May, peonies in June, roses in mid-summer and the late summer blooms of the September Garden. 

And, enjoy a light lunch, freshly baked scones or a delicious cake in our café and have a browse around the fine selection of perennials in our
specialist nursery.
