Welcome to
Harrogate

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 the Harrogate area for a memorable break. With such a varied range of events in Harrogate, you will find there is always something taking place to capture your interest

For a comfortable stay you will find a comprehensive range of accommodation in Harrogate 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 when you explore things to do in Harrogate. 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. Whatever your interests, let us inspire you to make more of your visit.

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.

Telling the story of Edwardian Harrogate's workforce

The new exhibition coming to the Mercer Art Gallery pulls back the curtain on the workforce who made Harrogate what it is. Many Harrogate stories focus on celebrity spa visitors and the experiences of genteel cure-seekers. For the first time, this exhibition will discover the largely untold stories of Harrogate’s workers: the people who built and maintained the town and those whose service sustained the glowing, international reputation of Harrogate’s baths, pump rooms, shops and...
