Harrogate : Your Ultimate Destination for 2019

Harrogate has a grand history of welcoming visitors from across the world and that tradition continues today.  Visitors enjoy its open green spaces, a buzzing bar and restaurant scene alongside vibrant shopping streets that mix familiar names with thriving independents.

Harrogate came of age as a destination spa town that attracted members of high society from across Europe to breathe its Yorkshire air and partake of the infamous sulphur waters at the Royal Pump Room – reputed to have many and varied therapeutic effects.  It remains the premier spa town of the north of England to this day.

Beyond the town of Harrogate is a rich rural district that features a cathedral city, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as rolling dales, charming market towns and remarkable natural wonders. 

Yorkshire, with Harrogate at its heart has welcomed the very best in elite cycling for the last five years, beginning with the Tour de France in 2014, and going on to both the men’s and women’s Tour de Yorkshire.

It makes sense that Harrogate is the place to welcome the World Championships to Yorkshire. 

See A Real Yorkshire Welcome

The crowds of Harrogate and Yorkshire know how to give a welcome like no other.  Don’t just take our word for it; see the videos and photos shared by spectators at this year’s Tour de Yorkshire and previous events such as the Tour de France on our interactive Tour Wall.

When world class cycling comes to Yorkshire it is not just about the bikes.  Come to Harrogate in September 2019 and enjoy the race, the crowds, the food and the celebrations – the Tour Wall is just a taster of the carnival atmosphere you will find with us in 2019.

Harrogate will welcome the world

Alongside the racing there will be week-long programme events and celebrations as well as a program of events throughout the year in the run up to the big week, Harrogate Welcomes the World will be launched later in the year.

We know from the Tour de France in 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire in 2017 that Harrogate will offer the biggest welcome.  We hope you will join us for this magnificent event, and experience the celebrations throughout 2019.
