From the windswept Dales to the Jurassic heritage coast, the cobblestones of York to the cosmopolitan heart of Leeds; Yorkshire is a place of great, inspiring contrast. And there is no better place to call home during your stay in Yorkshire than Harrogate, giving you the perfect base from which to explore the innumerable sights and experiences of this diverse and eclectic region.
The delightful spa town of Harrogate offers inspiring heritage buildings, beautiful cobbled streets and an array of small, independent boutique shops and cafés. Whether you’re visiting the famous Turkish baths for a restorative and relaxing soak, or indulging in a little therapy of the retail kind, there’s a wonderful array of things to see and do in Harrogate.
This historic spa town is also where you’ll find one of Yorkshire’s greatest accomplishments, Betty’s Tea Rooms – the world-famous café which will forever set the benchmark in quality afternoon tea.
The St George Hotel is centrally located in the heart of Harrogate, with its recognisable façade and storied history. This regal building channels the charm of the old spa town, providing an idyllic base for a quintessentially Harrogate retreat.
From Harrogate, there is so much to do in the surrounding towns and Yorkshire countryside. Just outside the town is the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 233 square miles of scenic countryside, just waiting to be explored on foot or by bicycle.
History buffs will love Yorkshire’s Viking connection, which is best experienced in the grand old city of York – just 20 miles from Harrogate. With its Roman-age city walls, medieval Shambles, and award-winning interactive Viking history centre, Jorvik, York is the ultimate day out for those hoping to get to grips with the county’s captivating heritage.
