Didn't think the gardens warrented the cost of entry. Most of the planting was passed it's best which I suppose was understandable for the time of year but if a garden is open it ought to have something worth seeing. Also visitors have to purchase a separate booklet to find out what the plants are which is a bit of a cheek considering the already steep price of tickets. The house wasn't open either, which wasn't explicit on the leaflet. My advice to anyone visiting the North /East Yorks region would be to visit Burton Agnes instead. we went on there after Scampston and were really impressed with the walled garden and the interactive areas. The house was lovely too.

Eagerly anticipated visit was very disappointing. We left within 10 mins simply as the garden has been opened too early and almost all the plants are dormant. I expressed our unhappiness on the way out as the lush flowering photos bear no resemblance to the barren garden we witnessed. Sure it will be nicer later in the year. Certainly not worth 12 quid.

The gardens are very enjoyable in their present state, but will benefit from the topiary/shrub plantings maturing to create real hide and seek opportunities. If i had a walled garden this is not the use i would put it to.
