Walk beside Bettys’ famous tea rooms, then Turkish baths and an unusual statue, before arriving at the Royal Pump Room, now a glorious museum to Harrogate’s past.
Second Walk: Pump Room to The Stray (1.3 miles)From the Royal Pump Room, and its majestic museum, past the historic Crown Hotel, you soon reach one end of The Stray, with its criss-crossing of paths.
