For those who are bringing the family you will find fun, adventure and ice-skating as well as numerous opportunities to meet Father Christmas himself.

From the beginning of November, all the way through until New Year’s Day the Harrogate District has a busy schedule of sparkling events to get you in the festive spirit.

Christmas markets and fairs fill town centres offering a fun alternative to the usual shopping experience with delicious Christmas treats and a truly magical, festive feel.

The traditional Pantomime runs throughout the festive season in Harrogate Theatre and you can make that all-important visit to see Father Christmas in his grotto at a number of spectacular locations across the district.

When it comes time to ‘refuel’ you will find yourself spoilt for choice. There are over 135 restaurants to choose from in Harrogate alone and many more culinary gems across the district.

From a traditional pub serving delicious homemade dishes and local beers in front of an open fire to light bites in one of the numerous independent cafés priding themselves on their single origin coffee beans and home baking.

Whatever you are looking for this Christmas the Harrogate District extends a warm festive welcome to visitors and residents alike.
