Well-loved gardens in North Yorkshire are to be lit up this winter.

And organisers say tickets for the spectacle are selling fast.

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Garden Harlow Carr, in Harrogate, will be filled with festive illuminations during its Glow event from Wednesday, November 22, to Saturday, December 30.

This year - for the first time - the RHS says it is working with industry lighting experts SLX to “reimagine” routes to give visitors the chance to experience the gardens “in a totally new light”.

“The magical winter walk will shine a light on some of the season’s most spectacular sights after dark,” added a spokesperson for the RHS.

From November, visitors can stroll beneath the stars and take in all the gardens have to offer.

RHS Harlow Carr’s 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.

The historic Bath House will also be open with a Christmas crafts exhibition, offering visitors the chance to pick up some locally hand crafted Christmas gifts.
