The Royal Pump Room Museum is open free on charge on Friday 9th September as part of the Heritage Open Days programme. Learn about the history of the spas in Harrogate and the people who visited to take the waters. At the other end of the social scale, the spa workers of the town are also celebrated in our special exhibition.


Dr Paul Jennings, who curated the Spa Workers exhibition will be giving a talk about the spa workers of Harrogate at 10.30am and 2pm.


Harrogate is famous for its wealthy and distinguished visitors, but the lives of the workers who sustained this elegant spa town are relatively unknown. This talk will uncover their stories. The talks must be booked in advance on the Heritage Open Days website.
