Harrogate Spring Show

36 comments


Hi everyone, I am thinking of going to the Harrogate Spring Flower Show in April, our local paper is advertising a coach trip. I was just wondering if anyone could recommend this show. I don’t really know why I am asking really, as I am sure that you will all say yes, and I love all flower shows. The trip is staying overnight and visiting York the next day. I thought it sounded good, so will probably book it anyway. Who knows, may be able to meet up with a few GoYers.

Wish I could make it..its a bit far for me. Was in York in May last year. Lovely cottage in Newton on Ouse.

Well I wouldnt have been able had it not been for this advertised trip, and decided I needed a break anyway. Shame you cant get there Tet, would have been nice to meet up.

I nearly got inveigled into going up to Scunthorpe in mid march..a friend of a friend's 80th, but to be quite frank I didnt fancy driving all that way for one night and back again. I love driving but havent done much for 3 months..all this bad weather and nowhere much to go..need a few shorter trips first to get back in the swing..

19 Feb, 2011

 

I know that feeling, I am going off driving anyway.

19 Feb, 2011

 

I have only driven 3 times since december, damn gammy leg

Dont forget the irises...yes it would have been nice to have met up Cinders...maybe later in the year somewhere, Im hoping to visit Spritz' garden and DD's.

19 Feb, 2011

 

Well I am definitely going to DD's, dont know which day yet, but would like to go to Spritz's as well, as that is fairly close to me.

19 Feb, 2011

I HAVE NOT BEEN TO HARROGATE BUT I HAVE BEEN TO YORK AND LOVED IT. IT IS A REALLY BEAUTIFUL PLACE. YOU WILL LOVE IT TOO. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT MISS THE CATHEDRAL.

19 Feb, 2011

 

O.K. Cinders, I ill make sure I wear my GOY badge, your right about the Cathedral Cos but I think the £10 entry is a bit much, thats what is was the last time we went

19 Feb, 2011

 

OK Cos, thanks,. I hope they allow us enough time for that. Looking forward to it

19 Feb, 2011

 

I am sure you will have a great time, plenty of pics please Cinders.

19 Feb, 2011

 

I think its on for three days San, but my trip goes to York on the 16th. I think it could be 15th - 17th. Yes I like Harrogate, I have been there, but years ago. Will be lovely to go again, even tho I expect our time there will all be at the show.

19 Feb, 2011

 

Sandra, google "coach trip to Harrogate Flower Show", 2 day trip, evening meal bed and full english plus ferried to York and Harrogate about £99 pp, single supp. applies

19 Feb, 2011

 

Yes, go and have a wonderful time, and take plenty of pics to show us who are not able to get there :o))

20 Feb, 2011

 

Thanks Hywel for your comments. I will do that.

20 Feb, 2011

 

Oh Cinders,what a shame..we have just booked to spend 3 nights at a hotel we went to for my birthday last October,as we got the offer of reduced price tickets for Friday,the 15th.,from the Company I used to work for,as they are going on one of their retired staff days out.,but I might surprise you too,if we can manage to come home via York,on the way home?..won't promise,but will see what I can do..it would be great to meet up with you all..It is quite expensive to go in the Cathedral now,Cinders,but you sound as though you will be having most of the day there ?so you will have time,if you want to do so..By the way,17th is the last day of the show..so should have bargains to be had.:o))

20 Feb, 2011

 

O Sandra, that is a shame, but never mind, perhaps something else will turn up yet. I have definitely booked it this morning over the net. I am getting quite excited about it already. I am coming up with a male friend, so don't know what he will think of me meeting up with all these Goyers. But I don't care really, he can go off on his own if he doesnt like it !! He is coming for company for me really.
I'm all for bargains Sandra !!

20 Feb, 2011

 

If we miss each other most of the day, we can be SURE of meeting up where the bargains are lol!

20 Feb, 2011

 

Thats very true !! Don't forget to where a badge, so we know who's who.
