“Take the waters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

This is a worthwhile visit, see what made old Harrogate in pictures and exhibits. Use the tap on the rear outside wall to taste the waters. This is what everyone flocked to the town for.

“Memory Lane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

As a child-80 odd years ago-I was there with my parents. Interested to see if I could remember anything.
I liked all the exhibits and general history.

“very interesting exhibitions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Visited the pump room museum in Harrogate whilst staying in Knaresborough. Really interesting displays and sampled the 'salty waters' that are supposed to be very therapeutic for a variety of ailments. Unusual taste!!! Staff very knowledgeable and gave us lots of extra info.
