A Visit to RHS Garden Harlow Carr


Living in Yorkshire, I am surrounded by beautiful landscapes. But one of my favourite locations to take photographs of nature (especially great pics of flowers) is only a short journey up North, just outside of Harrogate. I am talking about the RHS Garden Harlow Carr.


Harlow Carr is the most northerly of all Royal Horticultural Society’s gardens. It is a great family day out destination, where everyone can find something of interest, especially true for kids, who can enjoy a visit to a log maze or a tree house.

But for me as a photography enthusiast, it is a great destination to visit for its seasonal beauty, which can deliver plenty of fantastic photo opportunities all year round. This is the kind of place where you can spend hours trying to explore everything. And to make it better it will look different, depending on the season in which you visit.


It also has an Alpine Zone, a huge greenhouse housing a collection of alpine plants and flowers, some of them under threat in their natural habitat. It’s nice of folks at the RHS to look after them and display them for everyone to enjoy!

So next time you make it up North, make sure you visit the RHS Garden Harlow Carr (the on-site Betty’s will be an additional incentive!).
