The Valley Gardens, Harrogate, is a 17-acre English Heritage Grade II Listed garden in regal Low Harrogate, next to the Pinewoods woodlands.


It includes beautiful historic buildings, including the Magnesia Well Pump Rooms, the Sun Pavilion and the Sun Colonnade, which sit alongside a wide variety of shrub, flower and herbaceous beds.

Part of the gardens are protected by the Harrogate Borough Council Act 1986 and are known as the Bogs Field.  The Act outlines how the council manages this area to maintain and preserve it.  The Friends of Valley Gardens works with the council to provide valuable support in the gardens and with upcoming projects.
