See why Harrogate district is the shopping capital of Yorkshire
Harrogate is known for its eclectic, elegant and diverse range of shops, a reputation that not only Harrogate, but all the nearby market towns and the city of Ripon live up to with ease.
Once a popular destination for European high society, nowadays Harrogate shopping it is just as fashionable and you can find all the leading high-street names with their quality brands sitting alongside stylish independents.
Specialist shops around Harrogate and its surrounding towns and city have a unique range of home accessories and gift items so if you are looking for something a little bit different to take home with you or looking for a piece of home furniture with a bit of originality, you will be spoilt for choice.
When you visit you will find Harrogate shopping also stretches out to our traditional market towns with great independent shops and in particular, little galleries tucked away in side streets and courtyards, just waiting to be discovered.
Outdoors enthusiasts will find everything they need from supplies to walking guides, and cyclists can be sure of great service across our host of prestigious cycle shops.
In and around the picturesque market squares of Knaresborough, Ripon and Masham or on the high street of Boroughbridge and Pateley Bridge, you will find wonderful butchers, bakers, confectioners and delicatessens selling the very best of local produce.
Make sure you sample some of our locally made beers, pies, confectionery and cakes while you are here.
