Glow Illuminations at the gardens in Harrogate.

The tickets, available on Thursday evenings from Thursday 21st November to Thursday 19th December, are priced from £4.00 rather than the usual £8.00pp when pre-booking groups of 10 plus.  

On the outskirts of Harrogate, in 58 acres of wooded valley, RHS Garden Harlow Carr has been specially put together to ‘capture the essence of Yorkshire within a beautiful garden setting’.   

The seasonal Glow Illuminations at the garden runs from 21st November to 28th December, setting the site aglow, every Thursday – Saturday (except Boxing Day) from 4.30pm – 8pm. 

Special lighting effects create an illuminated trail around the garden’s trees and shrubs and unique illuminations are reflected in the lake, on the Streamside walk, Winter Walk, Doric columns and Alpine House, bringing the area to life.

What else to look forward to

Along with the seasonal display, groups can enjoy Christmas shopping at the RHS Shop and festive treats at the well-known Bettys Tea Rooms.

The atmosphere will be enhanced further too, with a choir and special family activities in a dedicated marquee.
