We found the trip to the pump rooms cheap and quite interesting. A trip to a museum is always what you make it I think especially in somewhere as small as this. Cheap and cheerful.

This was a very interesting place to visit, not only did it tell you all about the old pump rooms but you have costumes of the day, and lots of gadgets and stuff relating to that time.

Loved it here. The museum is fascinating with lots of interesting information and detailed displays of Harrogate's history. The ladies working there were more than happy to answer questions and we thoroughly enjoyed out visit.

I enjoyed seeing the history of the spa and the contraptions used to 'treat' the victorian visitors and make them feel revived. Not so sure about the egyptian part which seemed a bit out of place but there's probably a connection and a good reason which I didnt research. Would have liked a little closer look at the well which... More

on a fine day, please visit but be very aware of the sulphur smell and taste the water in the pump house with caution, the valley garden opposite are idyllic

An interesting display of Harrogate's Spa town history. Every half hour the guides will take visitors down to the wells in the basement for a 10-minute explanation of Harrogate's history and open up the wells (which stink, by the way!)

We weren't sure what to expect from this attraction, however it was far more interesting than I thought it would be. Not a particularly big museum, so doesn't take too long to go through. There is lots of information contained in a very small place though - giving the history of the Spa and the town, as well as a... More
