Cherry blossom on the Stray.

New drone footage has shown the stunning cherry blossom trees in full bloom on Harrogate’s Stray.

Cherry blossom are now in view along the Stray’s paths, with April often the most vibrant month for displays on sakura trees.

Harrogate was recently voted one of the best places in the UK to see cherry blossom in a list devised by Time Out magazine.

The list of ten included locations in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff, with Harrogate’s Stray ranked at number three on the list and billed as a “historical stroll.” 

Time Out magazine said:

“You’ll find candyfloss archways of perfect blossom all over The Stray: a 200-acre stretch of parkland in Yorkshire’s regal spa town. 

“Planted in 1953 to celebrate the Queen’s coronation, the blossoms are usually joined by patches of jewel-bright crocuses and sunshine daffodils in spring.”
