Great late summer things to do around Harrogate

Embrace the last of Summer

The summer holidays may be over but the September sunshine is always the perfect reason to get out and about, explore the Harrogate district and spend time at our wonderful attractions before thoughts turn to winter.

Late summer sunshine in the Harrogate area

If you have not visited recently, you will find they are all operating in new ways to maintain social distancing with enhanced hygiene measures to ensure everyone is safe.  It is important to check online and plan ahead as you will need book in advance - so just make sure you ‘Know Before You Go.’

Relaxing Gardens

If you want to enjoy a relaxing day out why not head to Newby Hall and Gardens. The gardens, playground, railway, restaurant, river cruises and all their exhibitions are open until Sunday 11th October.

Late summer displays at RHS Garden Harlow Carr

The beautiful RHS gardens at Harlow Carr are a joy to wander through at this time of year as the summer borders give one final flourish, as are the stunning National Trust gardens at Beningbrough Hall and Fountains Abbey.

Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park

If you have never been, the Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park at Grewelthorpe is a true hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. Located in the beautiful countryside between Masham and Ripon, it is home to over 80 contemporary sculptures set within 45 acres of breath-taking garden, inspired by the Himalayas. It is well worth a visit before they close for the winter on Sunday 1st November.
