Valley Gardens is an English Heritage Grade II listed park in the centre of Harrogate which represents a typical example of a Victorian era community park. It contains playing areas and tennis courts, pitch and putt and crazy golf, bowls, boating ponds, bandstands, formal and less formal gardens and plenty of places to take a promenade. The gardens are remarkable in containing more natural mineral springs than any other park. During the summer, free band concerts take place in the park with a particular emphasis on brass band music. Entry is free to all and the park is open 24 hours a day.
There has been a church on the cathedral site since the 8th century; but it wasn't until 1836 that the building as we see it today became a cathedral. The cathedral is open daily to the public and a donation of £3 is suggested. There is a gift shop and a museum. If you wish to take photographs or film inside then you do need to purchase a permit for a small fee.
