With its ornate fascia and delicious cakes, Betty's is the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee. Afterwards, visit the RHS garden at Harlow Carr. Celebrating over 60 years of history, the garden reflects the Yorkshire landscape and is dominated by stone, water and woodland. Together with the recent addition of an Alpine House and learning centre, there are colourful borders, landscaped lawns and beautiful meadows.

This afternoon, travel to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire Village and explore this model industrial village built by Sir Titus Salt in the 19th century to house his employees at Salts Textile Mill. Local costumed characters lead a guided walk bringing the history of this remarkable village to life.
