Visitor's Guide to Harrogate

Visitor's Guide to Harrogate A visit to Harrogate presents an opportunity to properly explore what many consider to be a very traditional and middle-class area of Yorkshire.

Steeped in history and encroaching on the beautiful Dales, Harrogate has retained much of the charm of rural Yorkshire, whilst still being a town that’s prepared to very much embrace the 21st century.

If you want fashionable shops and café bars you’ll find plenty here but you’ll also be able to take a cream tea in the legendary Betty’s Teashop, and enjoy a night at the beautiful Victorian Harrogate Theatre [map] .

Known as “England’s Floral District” Harrogate continues to win annual prizes including the Entente Florale for its impressive gardens and floral displays. You could take a moment to explore Montpellier Gardens [map] or wander through the landscaped beauty of the Royal Horticultural Society [map] garden on Carr Lane.

Those with a love of history or art will find plenty to keep them occupied including a visit to the lively Mercer Gallery [map] or a trip to the Royal Pump Room Museum [map] .

If you want to make your break in Harrogate truly memorable pay a visit to the Turkish Baths and Health Spa [map]. Harrogate was one of the most popular Spa towns in Europe during the reign of Queen Victoria and visitors can see just the kind of luxury Victorians enjoyed here – with a few 21st century mod cons to make your experience doubly pleasurable.

Finding a place to stay in Harrogate is easy, and there’s plenty of hotels offering class and style that those on a moderate budget can easily afford.

Harrogate, much more than a market town, is truly the rose of Yorkshire.
