“Premier RHS garden”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Still undergoing major changes since being taken over by the RHS, Harlow Carr remains a firm favourite. Stunning settings and spectacular gardens with all year round interest. Would receive five stars but the RHS insists on starting new projects before completing others, so there is always too much work under way. Betty’s cafe and restaurant and a fantastic, if expensive, plant centre add to the experience. Don’t bother with the Harrogate Arm’s around the corner.

“Expensive but really good on the eye”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

On a sunny day, what better place to have a stroll and take in the beauty of this place a few minutes drive from the centre of Harrogate. Fabulous landscaped gardens and a Betty's Tea Shop.

Negatives:

The entrance fee is a bit pricey and I don't like how all these places seem to lead you through their shop to make you spend even more.

“Expensive”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Nice enough garden, though nothing very exciting and DEFINITELY not worth the entry fee. (We came for free as a member of our family had some passes). We had a nice little walk round, but there wasn't much for the kids. There are plenty of other more exciting, cost free or minimal cost ie car parking, like Brimham rocks, Ilkley moor, Otley Chevin.

“Poor value”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Visited here on 6 March 2013. Not at all impressed. V expensive and nothing to see! The worst of the RHS gardens I have visited. The best being Rosemoor in North Devon in every respect.
Also not impressed with Betty's tearoom which came highly recommended and our first and last visit. £18.00 for one set tea and small at that. Paying for the name I think.
