One of Yorkshire’s most relaxing and innovative gardens at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, RHS Harlow Carr is a showcase of horticultural excellence all year round!

Wonder through the tranquil surroundings of this stunning 58 acre garden and gain ideas for your own borders, or simply relax with family and friends on a leisurely stroll.

Find year-round inspiration along the dramatic Main Borders where the RHS experts have chosen contemporary planting to suit the challenging growing conditions. Pick up the latest tips and growing techniques in the beautiful Kitchen Garden, where raised beds, fruit trees and a forager’s garden have been laid out with thoughtful design and ornamental aspects to create a truly unique and inspirational growing space. Saunter along the lush Streamside Garden, unearth hidden treasures in the Woodland and take glorious deep breaths in the magical Scented Garden, with its focus on roses. The natural elements of play in the RHS Harlow Carr gardens are just waiting to be explored by little ones. Slide down the tongue of the Log Ness Monster, climb, swing and clamber on the Craggle Top Treehouse. When you’ve burnt off all your energy, head down to the garden’s bird hide and spy on a variety of resident and migrating species. Year round events include the Halow Carr Flower Show, and activities for all the family too. From outdoor theatre, guided walks, discovery trails, planting and wildlife workshops, to displays and demonstrations. The extensive RHS Harlow Carr Plant Centre & Shop is home to a generous array of books, home wares and gifts, as well as a large plant selection with knowledgeable staff on hand. And, no visit would be complete without a trip to Bettys Café Tea Rooms to savour a mouth-watering bite in the café or coffee shop, or buy delicious goodies to take home. 

The RHS is keen to promote green initiatives and to reduce the environmental impact of its activities. Initiatives include: 

  • Green Travel discount to visitors travelling by bus or cyclists with bike racks provided on site.
  • Rainwater collection for toilets and irrigation
  • Wind turbine for own energy use and export to Grid
  • Ground source heat pump
  • Solar Panels
  • Learning Centre construction to exacting insulation standards with sun tubes for illumination
  • Conversion to low energy consumption lighting systems
  • All green waste is composted and a majority of other waste recycled
