View the days out leaflet for Burnby Hall Gardens and Museum - Main Brochure

Burnby Hall Gardens are situated in the charming market town of Pocklington, on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. The wonderful Gardens are often claimed to be "a jewel in Yorkshire’s Crown” and have been awarded Gold in the prestigious Yorkshire in Bloom competition for the last three years.

The two lakes are home to a National Collection of Hardy Water Lilies and offer a wonderful array of changing vistas. The Gardens also include a Rockery, Stumpery, a Victorian Garden, Secret Garden, formal beds and natural shrubbery.

The Gardens are frequently referred to as "a haven of beauty and tranquillity” and were the inspiration of Major Percy Marlborough Stewart. He was an amazing man who made eight round the world voyages between 1906 and 1926. The Stewart Museum within the Gardens is dedicated to his extraordinary life and contains the fascinating artefacts he brought back to Pocklington.

Throughout the year the Gardens host many special events including Brass Band Concerts, Open Air Theatre, Family Days, Easter Celebrations, a traditional May Day, a Santa visit and much more.

The Lilypad Cafe offers a wide range of refreshments and there is a beautiful Book and Gift shop
