About the Event
York Gate is a magical one-acre garden created by the Spencer family between 1951 and 1994. Frederick and Sybil Spencer along with their son Robin, laid out and nurtured what is now one of the finest small gardens in the country. The design of ‘rooms’ interlinked through a succession of vistas and executed with meticulous attention to detail owed much to the Arts and Crafts movement, complemented by Sybil’s skills as a plantswoman. In accordance with Sybil’s wishes, on her death in 1994, York Gate was given to Perennial.
York Gate has been recognised by Tripadvisor as a 2022 Travellers’ Choice award winner landing it a place among travellers’ favourites and in the top 10% of attractions worldwide.
York Gate has been granted Grade II national heritage status in a list of post-war gardens and landscapes for England. “It is an amazing garden, and it should be protected. It’s not a stately home, it’s a family home. It would have meant a lot to Sybil, to see the family name and legacy live on.” Jack Ogg, Head Gardener.
