If the kids are bored, there are plenty of things to do in Harrogate for children including riding on Britain’s longest roller coaster at Lightwater Valley, hiring a boat on the River Nidd at Knaresborough, trekking with llamas or scrambling through How Stean Gorge.
Not to mention adventure playgrounds, paddling pools, mini-golf and discovery trails across the district.
Then take in a show or a concert, see the latest exhibition at one of the many galleries or drop into the local museum.
Festivals, Flower Shows, Fairs and Agricultural Shows pepper the calendar throughout the year and of course, the Tour de France Grand Depart was a major highlight for 2014 with crowds and decorations that amazed the riders and organisers alike.
