Bettys, at Harlow Carr
At Betty's, Harlow Carr the deliciousness of the treats is matched by the beauty of the surroundings, the splendid RHS Gardens, where the four seasons are celebrated with stunning displays of colour.
The Bettys Story
For over 100 years Bettys has been delighting customers with delicious handmade cakes, mouth-watering chocolates, exclusive coffees and fine teas.
The Bettys story began in 1919 when a young Swiss Confectioner, Frederick Belmont, left the Swiss Alps and travelled to England with the dream of creating his own business. The beautiful countryside and sweet clear air of Yorkshire reminded him of his native Switzerland and in 1919 he opened his first Bettys Café Tea Rooms in the fashionable spa town of Harrogate. The combination of exquisite Swiss confectionery, Yorkshire warmth and hospitality and the elegant surroundings proved an instant success.
One hundred years later and Bettys has grown to become a treasured and iconic Yorkshire business, the home of afternoon tea and a destination venue known and loved all around the world. Today there are five Bettys Café Tea Rooms, all in Yorkshire, each completely different, with its own very distinct personality and character. Annually around two million people a year visit Bettys and many more shop online to enjoy Bettys delicious specialities at home.Read more
