Goddards Garden
Goddards Garden
Chocolateer Noel Goddard Terry left behind a legacy that delights the senses as much as some of his edible creations. Goddards Garden is a small beacon of colour on the outskirts of the city of York, close to the famous race course. The garden includes a variety of distinct areas, including floral terraces, ponds, and rock gardens.
The garden features a mix of formal and informal wilderness areas, with a special collection of flowering shrubs. If you feel inspired you can also purchase plants to take home and use in your own garden creations.

Goddards Garden was designed by George Dillistone of Tunbridge Wells. Dillistone crafted a set of garden rooms set off by formal yew hedges asnd herbaceous borders. Within the garden is a colony of midwife toads; one of the few such colonies in England.

The garden surrounds an Arts and Crafts style house built in 1927, which now serves as the Yorkshire headquarters of the National Trust.
