A broad and fascinating array of unique attractions is waiting to be discovered when you visit the Harrogate District.

Historic abbeys, castles, country houses and monuments tell the ancient stories of politics, religion and power. From Roman mosaics and medieval strongholds to 18th Century showpieces, generations have left their mark for us to see today.

No visit is complete without a trip to the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal or the lovely Ripon Cathedral, believed to be a source of inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.


How Stean in a cave

As you would expect from the home of the prestigious Harrogate Flower Shows, this part of the world is a garden lover’s paradise. We have an extraordinary range of almost forty parks and gardens to enjoy including the Royal Horticultural Society’s most northerly gardens, magnificent formal and public gardens and some more exotic surprises too!

There is plenty among our attractions to keep the whole family entertained with a variety of visitor attractions offering anything from nature trails and adventure playgrounds to miniature railways, ice-skating and boating. With the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on our doorstep there is every opportunity to experience the outdoors with a little adventure or just take some time to explore the wonders of the natural world. 

Ripon Museums John as gardener

Museums and galleries are peppered across the District, each different to the next and our lively theatres and cinemas and rich programme of leading arts festivals mean that there is always something to entertain you.

Whatever your age, whatever your passion you will always find something memorable to do when you visit this District.
