Description:
These gardens and museum are close to the centre of Pocklington, a market town in the County of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. Two lakes are set in eight acres of gardens - including rock gardens, a natural shrubbery, formal beds, the Secret Garden, a Victorian Garden and many other attractions.
 
Burnby Hall Gardens and Museum were the inspiration of Major Percy Stewart who, on his death in 1963, left his estate in Trust for the enjoyment of the people of Pocklington and the thousands of visitors who come from all over the world. The Stewart Museum provides a fascinating glimpse into his life.
