Welcome to Harrogate & District
Welcome to Harrogate – a Victorian spa town and rural district that contains the medieval city of Ripon, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and four charming but very different market towns; Boroughbridge, Knaresborough, Masham and Pateley Bridge
In the heart of Yorkshire this is your perfect base for a day, a weekend or a week. Indulge your passions and your senses and visit Harrogate for a memorable break.
For a comfortable stay you will find a comprehensive range of accommodation offering something for everyone, from convenient and cosmopolitan townhouses to remote and idyllic country cottages.
Your visit can be as active or as indulgent as you like. With the Yorkshire Dales on the doorstep there is plenty of scope for adventure activities during your stay, from mountain biking to rock climbing and abseiling, or just a bracing walk across the fells.
For the more metropolitan, the reputation of our shopping streets for exquisite retail opportunities is well deserved and our spa heritage is evident to this day with spa treatments new and old available.
Yorkshire prides itself on its food and drink, and Harrogate District flies this flag with pride, from our own gin, to the delicious local produce available across our towns. As well as familiar names you will find independent restaurants offering carefully prepared ingredients served to please the eye as well as the appetite.
Visit Harrogate is proud to welcome you to our special part of Yorkshire.
