We're are so excited for all the floral displays blooming around the town and the flower shows coming up this year! 🌹
There are so many seasonal shows to choose from! What season is your favourite? Why not share your experience of the Spring flower show or other floral events throughout the year in Harrogate North Yorkshire in the comments below... If you don't get the chance to see a show while you are here, why not share your pictures of a walk you found and the wild flowers and heathers you spotted along the way.
"We are so lucky in Harrogate North Yorkshire.
We have such gorgeous flower displays around the town and picturesque gardens such as Valley Gardens and RHS Harlow Carr nearby. So many beautiful walks to choose from and so many annual floral events that even non-gardeners can appreciate!
Thankfully, I work in Harrogate and I used to be a resident here for many years so I can enjoy all of these wonderful displays on my breaks and when seeing friends and family over here. I live in Leeds and love the city, but I am so grateful to get to work and spend my free time in such a vibrant, cosmopolitan town."

If you want to go for a walk close to the centre of Harrogate, and our apartments, then you have several options. Just a few minutes away you will find the Harrogate Stray where you can see our Crocuses in full bloom and take in the towns beautifully planted boarders full of colour. If you prefer a more secluded walk, wander out of the town through the Valley Gardens and up into Pine Woods. If you end up traversing through the Pine Woods why not stop off at Harlow Carr RHS Gardens where you will find another Betty's Cafe Tea Rooms that is off the beaten track. A timely appearance for a stop off to recharge with cup of tea or coffee and slice of cake. Maybe even try one of Betty's notorious "Fat Rascals" which are plump, fruity scones hand-decorated with a cheeky glacé cherry and given a face made of almonds. This naughty but nice Yorkshire scone is a firm favourite and one of Betty's most popular products made using their special fat rascal recipe.
There are many floral events this year. Which one will you choose to see on your visit to Harrogate?
We thought we would share our top picks for the most popular shows throughout the year in advance. This way you can look ahead and book your tickets for some of the best floral shows and stately gardens in the surrounding area all while booking your stay with us while we still have availability. Now that does sound like a good plan doesn't it?
Why not visit our fantastic bluebell woods in Hackfall woods near Ripon?
These ancient gardens are full of beautiful follies, riverside rambles and stunning waterfalls. All the space to run around makes a perfect day out for families.
Expore the ruins or simply play in the bubbling stream and enjoy a picnic in fields of vibrant Bluebell flowers.
Mobray Castle, a grade II listed building.
Near Hack Fall you will find the ruins of Mobray Castle. It is a slightly longer walk through the woods on the explorers path, but is worth it for the stunning views and scenery. A real photo opportunity to be had if you make it this far with the backdrop of the woodlands through the large arches of what remains of the structure.
