The gardens are beautiful and very flat with clear pathways which was good for my elderly mum and our 2 year old twins. We had such a good time and our girls loved watching all the butterflies and... more »
Beautiful! Easy to walk paths with informative and humorous signs along the way. I enjoyed the variety of gardens. I was there on one of the hottest days of the July and wasn't able to see it all. The place had a good vibe and was peaceful. No car? No problem. I arrived/left via Uber from downtown York. In my short York vacation, I choose one garden to visit. I was very happy that I visited Breezy Knees.
If you have a bit of spare time while in York and enjoy a well designed garden, sure it's one place to go! Bus runs from city centre and you walk the rest. They also have a coffee shop with very good food.
