Thwaite Gardens and Bishop Burton Walled Garden
Once part of the estate of Thwaite Hall, an important survival of a 19th Century villa, but now owned by the University of Hull, in 1948 it became the Thwaite Botanic Gardens. Bishop Burton Walled Garden, built in the 1780s, is now open to the public.
