The views of the minster are different through the seasons. Views through the trees in full leaf or in winter bare branches. A quiet place to sit and reflect any time. The memorial garden is special. The rose garden in full bloom,wonderful. I visit regularly with friends or on my own.

A lovely little park situated right next to York Minster. It is a lovely place to have a peaceful stroll or a quiet picnic. I particularly liked the Burma Star memorial, my father fought in Burma so it brought a tear to my eye!

Deans park is home to the Minster library and a colonade of arches which are the remains of what was once the city centre residence of the Archbishops of York, this green area between Minster and Walls is the perfect route from the bustle of deangate to the peace of the cobbled street, home of the Treasurers house. Also perfect to simply sit and relax, (especially in warm weather) watching the world go by as you view the Minster in a setting in which it should be on all sides. Refreshments are available from a van at the deangate gate opposite which is a garden full of the York Minster Rose. An oasis in the city.

Just behind the Minster is this green sward surrounded by imposing old houses. A great place to have a picnic after a days sightseeing. Afterwards visit the Treasurers House or De Grays Court a short walk away.
