“You cannot beat RHS high standards”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

This was our first time at Harlow Carr and it did not disappoint even in miserable weather. Seeing how the RHS do it and how simple changes to the way you garden can make gardening less demanding makes visits to this sort of garden so rewarding. Opportunities to be able to identify your older apple varieties and a number of other exhibits and sales points also help to make this a real day out treat. Included in that is the fact there is a Bettys on the site and taste of their food and beverages makes every visit special!

“Nice variety”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We always visit Harlow Carr when we are in Harrogate. There are different things to see depending on the season and a variety of garden related things (gallery, bookshop, plant centre, etc) worth seeing. Plus there is a Betty's restaurant and a gift shop. Worth a visit even if you are not a keen gardener.

“Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

We went at the end of the season, but still lots to see.

It was smaller than we were expecting, but still stayed for four hours.

Would come again..... If it was a little cheaper

“A Place for Any Season”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is a great place at any time of the year, always something different to see. My favourite place is the Alpine house with its miniature world of plants. Plenty of advice from working gardeners on site.

Bettys tearoom expensive - you pay for the name.
