Rich with terrific scenery and history it is little surprise that the Yorkshire Dales was one of the first National Parks. Our base, Harrogate, is situated on the eastern edge of the Dales and is a beautiful spa town. RHS Harlow Carr Gardens and Betty's Tea Rooms are experiences not to be forgotten. We will be staying at the three-centuries-old Crown Hotel which is located near in the town centre. Dinner and Breakfast is included. There is a lift to all floors. All rooms are en suite with televisions, tea and
coffee making facilities and hairdryers.
