Royal Pump Room Museum
Spend the afternoon at Europe’s strongest sulphur wells in the Royal Pump Room Museum. The museum is open seven days per week and welcomes anyone over the age of five.
Here, you’ll learn about Harrogate’s past by discovering the displays of old-fashioned shops and Harrogate’s iconic park, The Stray.
Follow in the footsteps on the Royal Pump Room Museum’s most famous visitor, Tsarina Alexandra of Russia in 1911 and learn all about the ‘curing waters’.
There’s even a Harrogate’s Spa Workers exhibit, where you can learn about other celebrity spa visitors and cure-finders. Two spa wells rest in the basement, and are a must-see during a tour of this museum.
Additionally, there’s a temporary exhibition programme, so you’ll be able to see fresh displays on each visit! Don’t forget to check out the Egyptology and Russian nobility exhibits, too.
After your visit, why not go for a stroll around the neighbouring Valley Gardens?
