Helmsley Walled Garden – Yorkshire

A great walled garden in the heart of beautiful Yorkshire countryside (I would say that being from Yorkshire myself!). Not only does it look great but it is run by the local community and offers a horticultural therapy service.

It is definitely worth a visit whether you are interested in horticultural therapy or not. However, save space for lunch at the vegetarian vine-house cafe where they use ingredients grown in the garden.

There is a small admission charge.

More about the garden and it’s horticultural therapy programme can be found here: http://www.helmsleywalledgarden.org.uk/horticultural-therapy/
