Welcome to Murton Park

Covid – 19 update

We had intended to keep the outdoor parts of the site open for people to go for a walk and get fresh air.

We have now made the decision to close the whole of Murton Park for visitors until further notice. This is to ensure that people can social distance and we do not wish to be a place where people congregate.

Keep up to date with all that is going on at Murton Park through our social media platforms.

We very much look forward to welcoming you all back when this is all over.

Welcome to the website for Murton Park.

Here you’ll be able to get information about all the goings on here at the Yorkshire Museum of Farming, Danelaw Centre for Living History and the Derwent Valley Light Railway.

We are located in the village of Murton just outside York, for details on how to find us please click on the Find Us tab.  We are open from Easter till the end of October from 10:00 till 16:30 with last admission 15:30 for more details and prices please click the Opening Times and Prices tab.
