Book now for festive illuminations at RHS Garden Harlow Carr

Tickets for RHS Glow at RHS Garden Harlow Carr are selling fast as the UK’s leading gardening charity prepares to light up its most northerly garden once again this winter. The enchanting festive illuminations return to RHS Harlow Carr for selected dates from 22 November to 30 December.

This year for the first time the RHS is working with lighting experts SLX on reimagined routes that will give visitors the chance to experience RHS Harlow Carr in a totally new light. The magical winter walk will shine a light on some of the season’s most spectacular sights after dark.

From November, visitors can stroll beneath the stars, marvel at tree canopies awash with colour, and be spellbound by sparkling water features. RHS Harlow Carr’s perennially popular glittering trail will take in the newly opened Thaliana Bridge, Streamside, Woodland and Main Borders. New for 2023, the Logness Monster will be open so younger visitors can play during the visit.

Festive refreshments will be available from Bettys Tea House, including mulled wine or indulgent hot chocolate as well as a magnificent range of sweet treats including mince pies and fat rascals, a Yorkshire favourite.

The historic Bath House will also be open with an enticing Christmas Crafts exhibition, offering visitors the chance to pick up some locally hand crafted Christmas gifts. Don’t forget to stop at RHS Harlow Carr Garden Centre to explore a treasure trove of decorations as well as festive houseplants, wreaths and UK grown Christmas trees.

All tickets must be booked online in advance, and visitors are advised to book early to secure their preferred date and time. RHS members enjoy early access to booking and discounted ticket prices for Glow.
