Culture Guide To Harrogate

Culture in Harrogate People flock from across the Yorkshire region to enjoy Harrogate’s beautiful green spaces and award-winning gardens, providing the town with an unusual and natural cultural heritage.

The Valley Gardens [map] provide some of the most beautiful floral displays in the area. This is the place for lazing around on a sunny afternoon and catching a brass band performing on the pavilion or letting the little ones splash about in the paddling pool. The whole family can also enjoy the miniature golf on offer.

The Royal Horticulture Society Garden, Harlow Carr [map] at Cragg Lane, is something very special indeed. Incorporating 68 of England’s most beautifully landscaped acres, this visitor attraction has become something of a Mecca for anyone who has ever longed for green fingers. Spend a whole day at these amazing gardens and you can also enjoy the Museum of Gardening, a restaurant, gift shop and model village.

The very heart of the town centre has its own gardens in the shape of Montpellier. This is a floral area that runs the whole length of Montpellier Parade and provides a great place to contemplate the miracles of nature whilst taking a breather from the bustling centre of Harrogate.

If you’re planning a day out during your stay in Harrogate, don’t forget to head out on the nature trail and visit the many gardens in Ripon and Knaresborough.

Ripon has a particularly delightful Spa Garden in its city centre and it is here that you can soak up the sun and listen to music that drifts from the Victorian Band Stand.
