Lovely day spent in Harrogate today with Mrs W. We thought we’d be tourists and plan the visit using trip advisor which recommended the Mercer Gallery and Valley Gardens. Amazingly I have never walked through Valley Gardens before and what a delight it is. Harrogate is very fortunate to have such a beautiful park with so many recreational activities available, every town should have one of these.
The Mercer Gallery has an exhibition of young artists’ work, New Lights. It’s a biennial exhibition to showcase work by young artists from Northern England with some top notch sponsors. Really well worth a visit with such a range of brave and innovative ideas. It runs until the 17th November.
