RHS Royal Horticultural Society Garden

RHS Royal Horticultural Society Garden


One of England’s most relaxing and innovative gardens at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, Harlow Carr is a showcase of horticultural excellence.

Be inspired by contemporary planting in the Main Borders; pick up growing techniques in the Kitchen Garden and saunter along the Streamside Garden, the largest of its kind in the country. Unearth the hidden treasures in the woodland and take in the rejuvenated Scented Garden. Young ones can have fun on the Log Ness Monster and in the Woodland Tree House and enjoy school holiday activities.

Year-round events include gardening themed weekends, family holiday activities, plant fairs, food and drink festivals, outdoor music, theatre and film, and guided tours and trails. The extensive RHS Shop and Plant Centre is home to a huge array of books, home wares and gifts, as well as a large plant selection. And no visit would be complete without a trip to Bettys Café Tea Rooms all with ample free parking on the edge of Harrogate.
