Snowdrops – Harrogate & RHS Gardens Harlow Carr

Staying at The Crown Hotel

2 DAYS | 13th February 2022

Our weekend break takes us to Yorkshire and the delightful town of Harrogate, an English spa town that exudes a genteel calm and elegance. The town is adorned with fine Victorian and Edwardian architecture including the Turkish Baths and the ornate Royal Pump Room that contains the old sulphur well, whose spa water is still available for sampling. The town also boasts a number of sophisticated cafés and restaurants, as well as a tasteful range of shops.

Our home for our stay is The Crown Hotel, ideally situated in the heart of beautiful Harrogate and just a short walk from the world-famous Betty’s Tea Rooms. The hotel boasts the Churchill Suite dining room as well as Henry’s Bar and Lounge. The stylish bedrooms feature tea and coffee facilities, a TV, and a private bathroom.

We depart calling for coffee en-route to Harrogate. We aim to arrive around lunch time giving you the afternoon at leisure to visit one of the many places of interest; why not browse the shops or partake of afternoon tea at the famous Betty’s Tea rooms? Alternatively jump aboard the coach and head to the RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr. The traditional Yorkshire gardens are set in 68 acres of a glorious wooded valley, and the stunning snowdrops and aconites are just waiting to be admired. We then return to the hotel for dinner with the remainder of the evening at leisure. (Entrance to RHS Harlow Carr not included. RHS members free, non-members £13.50)

Beginning the day with a leisurely breakfast, why not take the time to read the morning papers, take a stroll through the gardens, visit the shops for a little retail therapy or grab a spot of lunch? We then venture to the 17th century Royal Gardens of Goldsborough Hall for its spectacular display of delicate hellebores, carpets of winter aconites, and over 40 rare varieties of snowdrops. After ample time to stroll through the grounds of this former Royal residence we complete our tour with a cream tea served in the conservatory. We then head for home making a comfort stop en-route and aim to arrive in the Macclesfield area around teatime.

Tour includes: Luxury coach travel throughout, 1 night dinner, bed and breakfast; entrance to Goldsborough Hall snowdrop gardens and a cream tea.
