Beautiful Gardens throughout Harrogate District

Beautiful Gardens throughout Harrogate District

The mild weather this month gives us the prefect excuse to venture outside and explore some of our beautiful gardens that are impressive throughout the seasons.

RHS Garden Harlow Carr is currently in bloom with multitudes of snowdrops, mini iris and crocus flowers predicting the arrival of Spring on the woodland walks. The Alpine House is full of colour and the current mosaic exhibition is fascinating for all age groups.

There are plenty of highlights for children during half term from the Logness Monster to the Craggle Top Tree House and a hedgehog-friendly garden, in addition to plenty of space for running and playing.

The garden is open 9:30 – 4pm throughout February with last entry at 3pm.

The World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden is an inspiring visit at any time of year. This month you can take in the stunning views of the majestic Abbey, follies and river unimpeded by the leaves that will be covering the mature trees in the summer months. Enjoy a walk with few other people in sight, a point of interest round every corner and a tea room at either end.

Both the Abbey and the Garden open at 10am and parking is available at both.

Valley Gardens in central Harrogate, home to some of the original mineral wells, is beautifully planted and maintained all year round.

Activities include a large children’s play area, skate park, tennis, crazy golf, disc golf, pitch and putt and table tennis.

The Magnesia Well Café is a lovely spot to sit and recharge with a cup of tea.

In the heart of Ripon you will find the Spa Garden with space for walking and playing with the children. This month there are plenty of bulbs coming through contrasting with the colours of the shrubs which are home to a wide variety of wildlife. As you explore the gardens look out for the woodcarvings commemorating Ripon’s role in Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland.
