Here are the answers to some of the questions we have been asked about the new autumn venue at Newby Hall:
A new home for Harrogate Autumn Flower Show
Why move to Newby Hall?
Newby Hall and its award-winning gardens are a jewel in North Yorkshire’s crown. Staging our autumn show in such a stunning location offers our visitors something no other major national flower show can provide – access to some of the best gardens in the country as well as admission to our fantastic show. This, together with their wide range of family activities, our long-standing relationship with the team at Newby and its easy access from the A1M motorway, makes it an ideal location for us.
