5 places to see Spring flowers in the Harrogate district

Think Harrogate and one of the first things to come to mind is flowers, gardens and our incredible Flower Shows held twice a year. Springtime is also synonymous with flowers so we’ve had a think about some of our favourite places in and around the town to enjoy the Spring blooms.


1. RHS Harlow Carr

RHS Harlow Carr, on the outskirts of Harrogate, will delight a flower lover at any time of year. Whether you are a keen gardener, shopping for your own garden or just wanting to enjoy a walk in stunning surroundings you won't be disappointed. More than 70,000 daffodils herald the start of Spring in joyous riot of colour that continues with hyacinths, scillas, chinodoxa and trilliums. The Woodland Walk made up of cherries, magnolia and rhododendrons is not to be missed when its in full blossom.

2. Valley Gardens

    Situated in the centre of Harrogate, the English Heritage Grade II Listed Valley Gardens are immaculately kept. Look out for Spring bulbs flowering in the beds and for the cherry trees blooming over the Japanese garden. There is plenty of nature to discover with the family and the dog on frosty mornings and sunny afternoons within striking range of the shops and cafes of the town centre.

    3. Nidd Gorge

      Take a walk on the wild side along the River Nidd towards Knaresborough. Wild Spring flowers will be on show notably snowdrops, bluebells and the pungent wild garlic. In this ancient woodland also keep your eyes peeled for kingfishers, roe deer, tawny owls, herons and woodpeckers.

      4. Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens

        There are more than 300,000 spring bulbs producing a carpet of colour in the grounds of this historic Hall and over 50 apple trees bloom in Spring along with a cherry tree lawn creating a stunning spectacle.

        5. Newby Hall, and Gardens

          Situated between Ripon and Boroughbridge the award winning gardens at Newby offer something special throughout the year and during the Spring it is the Water Garden that is first to start show its colours.
