Welcome to Harrogate & District

Proud to be voted the happiest place to live by Rightmove for three years running!

With a Cathedral City, a Spa town, historic marketing towns, a World Heritage Site and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty all within a few short miles of each other, the Harrogate district provides the perfect base for a varied holiday.

Whether you love the great outdoors or prefer shopping and good food, whether your passion is for gardens, history, art, culture or theatre, whether you want white knuckle rides or a leisurely round of golf, we have it all and more besides.  With so much to enjoy, it is easy to see why the area was voted the happiest place in Britain for two years running!

Discover walking tracks, cycle routes and bridlepaths in Nidderdale, Pateley Bridge, Ripon, Masham, Boroughbridge and the Yorkshire Dales.  Slip back to ancient times visiting monuments such as Ripon CathedralFountains Abbey, our Turkish Baths or admire the 18th Century elegance of historic houses such as Newby Hall. 

Stroll through the award winning Valley Gardens or RHS Harlow Carr or mooch around the stylish shops in Harrogate or the independents and galleries in the market towns. 

There are things to do, attractions and events for children of all ages whether riding on Britain’s longest roller coaster, hiring a boat on the river at Knaresborough, trekking with llamas or zip-wiring down gorges.

Enjoy a pub lunch with stunning views, take tea at our famous Bettys Tea Rooms or enjoy top notch food at one of our many fine restaurants.  Festivals, Flower Shows, Fairs and The Great Yorkshire Show pepper the calendar throughout the year so no two weeks are ever the same.

A hugely diverse range of accommodation options means you can stay in anything from five star luxury to a bunk barn.  Choose from smart town hotels, rural bed and breakfasts or a pub with rooms – and everything in between. 

For those that prefer self-catering there are a host of cottages, serviced apartments, caravan and campsites.  Whatever your budget, whatever your style, there is something here for you.

Set in the heart of Yorkshire, the Harrogate District is close to Leeds is within easy reach by rail, road and air.
