RIPLEY CASTLE and RHS HARLOW CARR - Wednesday 24th July - by coach
Ripley Castle and Harlow Car
As we make our way to RHS Harlow Carr Gardens in Harrogate, we will stop in the old historic village of Ripley, where we will have coffee & scone, served in the surroundings of the Castle.
There will be a private guided tour of the Castle, which has been the home of the Ingilby Family for over 700 years. We will no doubt be fascinated by the tales to be told.
After the tour there will be time for lunch (at your own cost) in either The Tea Room, or The Boar's Head Hotel, which serve a light bite meal. Also a visit to the gift shop is recommended.
At about 1.45 we will head to Harlow Carr Gardens, to enjoy the beautiful garden settings which should inspire you with ideas to take home. Also we can visit the wonderful gift shop, not forgetting Betty's Cafe Tea Room.
If you are members of the HHA or RHS please remember your membership cards, as you will be refunded after the visits.
Please note lunch is not provided on this outing
