Duncombe Park

HELMSLEY, York, YO62 5EB

Write a review

Duncombe Park's sweeping grass terraces, towering veteran trees, and classical temples were described by historian Christopher Hussey as "perhaps the most spectacularly beautiful among English landscape conceptions of the 18th century". Beside superb views over the Rye valley, visitors will discover woodland walks (including the 'yew tunnel'), ornamental parterres, and a 'secret garden' at the Orangery. The garden and surrounding parkland, which extends to 103 ha (255 acres), have been designated a National Nature Reserve, due to the rare insects and fungi which thrive on the dead and dying limbs of ancient trees.
