Things To Do in Harrogate & District

With a Cathedral City, a Spa Town, historic market towns, a World Heritage Site and stunning countryside all within a few short miles of each other, there are plenty of things to do in Harrogate and the surrounding district, providing 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 or for history, whether you want white knuckle rides or a leisurely round of golf, we have it all and more besides. 

Discover walking tracks, cycle routes and bridlepaths in Nidderdale.

Slip back to ancient times when you visit monuments such as Ripon Cathedral or Fountains Abbey 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 in Pateley Bridge or Masham

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.

Enjoy a pub lunch with stunning views, take tea at Betty’s Tearooms or enjoy top notch food at one of the area’s many fine restaurants.

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. 

With so much to enjoy, you will soon see why this area was voted the Happiest Place in Britain*
