Our In Bloom Record

Harrogate has entered regional, national and international In Bloom awards since they began over 40 years ago and we are multi-gold award winners.

 

We are immensely proud of our record and particular highlights include twice winning Europe in Bloom (the only town ever to achieve that and we did it with gold), special awards for tourism and having the RHS Britain in Bloom judges award their discretionary Best Public Park to the town's Valley Gardens.
