We were so glad we visited but thought we could go down to the well as some people on here said you could visit but it was not accessible. However we still enjoyed the visit and found lots of facts we did not know.

Quite an expensive trip around a small museum. However, the history is there and it was interesting to learn about Harrogate. Pop in when arriving in Harrogate and then visit the gardens opposite to see the wells.

The exhibition was very good, quite diverse but very informative. We unfortunately missed the trip down th the well for a sample of the water, but we could smell it outside, very "healthy"

Really interesting if small museum. There were a couple of interesting exhibitions, one about the First World War, and one about fashion over the last decade. I found the history of the spring the most interesting feature. It's a lovely building and the staff were very friendly and informative

Not a lot to see but definitely worth a visit. Interesting to see where it all started and the museum of artefacts from the time of the spas.

Real, Moorish -looking Turkish Baths with plentiful showers, fluffy large towels, loungers and graduated hot rooms and steam - and an icy douche bath. Perfection. Believe I had a nmassage there - but can't quite remember.

Pretty little place, Don't drink the waters, my husband did and did not like it. Well one of us had to, and I wasn't going to offer.

Staff very welcoming & the visit downstairs was very informative & explained in detail how the discovery of the sulphur water was the main reason why Harrogate became the lovely town that now exists.As a previous review mentions the entrance fee level helps to ensure the upkeep of this iconic building.Well worth a visit.
