Although it won't take too long to look round this museum it is worth a short visit. The permanent displays are on local history and Egypt and there is another room where the exhibition changes. If you time it right a guide will take a group down to the underground room where two sulphur springs emerge. They are no longer... More

Since our last visit, 10+ years ago, this had been much enhanced, and had a good display. Sadly, they no longer offered the spa water, but it was still available from a tap outside, if you don't mind ignoring the health warnings, and if those by your side can put up with bad egg smells for which you will be...

I visited during a short morning in Harrogate. The staff were wonderful and well-informed. They answered all my questions and then provided a visit to the lower level where the well outlets are viewed. The lovely lady who gave the presentation was obviously used to speaking to groups of visitors and gave a very comprehensive history of the Pump Rooms... More

We visited this small museum and took advantage of the short guided tour down to the wells below the ground level, where the smell of sulphur is quite strong. During this tour, the history of the wells in Harrogate is also explained. The wells can also be viewed without taking the guided tour; from a viewing panel above at ground... More

Very interesting place to visit to get a feel for the spa history of Harrogate. There is a guide who gives a talk in the cellars where the old sulphur and magnesium wells are located which is well worth listening to.

My husband and I were having a one night break to Harrogate and thought we couldn't visit without indulging in the famous spa. We had a Jacuzzi followed by a back, neck and shoulder massage and it was definitely something which we would do again. The surroundings were excellent and the staff friendly and efficient.
