RHS Garden Harlow Carr

RHS Garden Harlow Carr is one of five public gardens run by the Royal Horticultural Society. It is located on the western edge of Harrogate in the English county of North Yorkshire.  The RHS merged with the Northern Horticultural Society in 2001 and, with the merger, came the acquisition of its garden, Harlow Carr. Since the merger with the RHS there have been many developments at the garden including the creation of the Montague-Burton Teaching Garden, Gardens Through Time and the Winter Walk. The Main Borders have undergone a stunning redesign and Annuals Meadows have been creatively themed using willow-woven sculptures. The Woodland has been regenerated and now includes a Rhododendron Glade full of spring-flowering bulbs. The Alpine House and £3.3m Bramall Learning Centre, one of the greenest buildings in the country, are the latest additions to Harlow Carr.

Visitors to Harlow Carr visiting the Lakeside gardens will find two Sitting Spiritually swing seats where they can relax enjoy the views and tranquillity of their surroundings…the first one is to be found on your left as you approach the Edwardian garden and looks across at the lake itself and the new silver birch plantation. The second seat is nestled in a smaller courtyard garden which is a sun trap and people love to sit and swing on the seats here watching the world go by….”
