“Enchanted by them somehow”

RHS Garden Harlow Carr
Ranked #7 of 75 things to do in Harrogate
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was our first visit to an RHS garden. It was simply lovely. We had a very short time to be there as we just stopped on route.
For a family of 5 including a toddler this was a lot better than I had thought. The gardens were fantastic, even though it was winter. There were several children's activities to play on (although some where closed due to being covered in snow). They had an easter bunny wondering about handing out chocolate (the kids LOVED that naturally). They had crafting activities on which the kids loved too.
The alpine house absolutely made my day. Everything in the garden is lovingly labelled which made it a pleasure to wonder about looking at everything.

It was expensive but very good. Admittedly it was a quick visit. Also there was no pressure to join the membership at all.

It's different every time you go. RHS doing loads of work. Lovely place to stroll and relax. Betty's is a great place to finish off and relax.

Well worth the trip to get there, for a non gardener there was much to see which was different,especially in the garden centre area. The children had a great time climing the log ness monster and running around the tree house. The staff in the resource area where very good, and pleased to see that all the activities where included in the price. Fresh air and running, all great for children on a lovely fresh crisp afternoon, highly recommended.

Beautiful gardens. We've been members of the RHS for years now for the simple reason that we can visit Harlow Carr. Activities for all the family from planting vegetables to icing gingerbread men. The gardens are colourful and there are a plenty of things to do including: a bird hide, a treehouse playground, the 'log ness monster', and the Betty's tea rooms.

A must when in Harrogate for me as the gardens look different with every season. Great little plant sales and always pick up something to take home - and a visit to Betty's is just the finishing touch to a great day out.
