Visit Harrogate has created the first ‘Harrogate District Garden Guide’, in collaboration with a range of partners.
The guide is full colour, 24-pages long, showcasing many of the district’s ‘floral, herbaceous and arboreal delights in stunning, creative photography’. It will be launched at the Visit Harrogate stand at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show, taking place at the Great Yorkshire Showground at the end of April.
Gardens featured include the 63-acre RHS Garden Harlow Carr, as well as water gardens, landscaped woodlands, and smaller, private open gardens, such as Yorke House at Dacre Banks. The guide will also feature seasonal ‘Where to see’ sections, along with calendars of garden-related events.
Visit Harrogate director, Michael Newby, said: “The Harrogate District has such a wealth of gardens that it makes sense to celebrate them in this, the ‘year of the English garden’. There is something for everyone here – historic working gardens, listed gardens, national collections, water gardens and much more.
“I am delighted that we will be launching the publication at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show, where we will be taking the Harrogate gardens message to visitors from all over the country. We are working with a number of partners over the four days of the show.”
