See how our Gardens Grow - Gardens 2021

Celebrating Harrogate District Gardens

Studley Royal Water Garden from surprise view

During the pandemic gardening has become increasingly popular, with many giving it a go for the first time. The mental and physical health benefits of gardening and spending time simply enjoying gardens are well recognised. Taking pride in growing and caring for our own plants, being out in the fresh air, engaging with nature, all of these have really elevated our passion for gardening and gardens to the next level.

With this in mind Visit Harrogate launched our Gardens Campaign this month to share our gardens with you. We will be inviting everyone to ‘See how our gardens grow’ come and explore the gardens of the Harrogate District and experience our gardening events.

Eight of the Best

We are blessed with a unique range of glorious gardens and the campaign will showcase eight of the best: The National Trust properties of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden and Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens. The RHS splendour at Harlow Carr and one of the most important and beautiful 20th century gardens at Newby Hall.

In addition to these more well-known gardens the campaign will also feature some hidden gems: The Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park near Ripon, Markenfield Hall and the Ripon Walled Garden, part of the Ripon Community Link Charity working with adults and young people with learning disabilities.

Rudding Park Kitchen Garden Summer 0195

We all know Rudding Park for its stunning hotel and spa but did you know the Rudding Park Kitchen Garden is open to the public and free to visit?  The contemporary kitchen garden covers 1320 square metres, contains 52 raised beds constructed with the wood from English Oak trees and provides the remarkable restaurant, Horto. Over 500 different herbs, salads, edible flowers and fruits are grown here much to the delight of the hotel diners!

Make Harrogate's gardens the highlight of your summer, whether you visit us for a day, a weekend or longer - you will find something new, something to inspire and most importantly somewhere to relax.
