Event description

Description

As the library is quite compact, places are limited. If the visit is fully booked, you will still be able to click 'Register' to add yourself to the waiting list, and will be emailed if a place becomes available.


Located in the Bramall Learning Centre, the library at RHS Harlow Carr holds a varied collection of gardening and horticulture works, from historic to contemporary, and practical to theoretical.

The visit will cover how the library serves RHS members, researchers and the gardening public, how it supports Harlow Carr gardens, and how it functions as part of the wider RHS library network, along with the main Lindley Library in London, and sister libraries and reading rooms at other gardens.

In addition, the fascinating Language of Flowers exhibit, telling the story of flowers and their meanings, will be on loan from the Lindley Library at exactly the right time for us!

There will be plenty of time afterwards to examine some of the other treasures of the collection, explore the gardens and the Bath House (the previous home of the library), and have lunch or afternoon tea at Bettys café tea room.

How to get there

Harlow Carr is about a mile and a half from the centre of Harrogate. Bus X6a runs from Harrogate bus station to Harlow Carr. Car parking is free on site. If you have time, there is a lovely one-hour woodland walk that links Harrogate town centre with Harlow Carr.

Accessibility

If you have any accessibility concerns, please contact cilipyh@gmail.com before the visit and we will do our best to help.
