Harrogate Shopping

At a time when one high street often looks like the next, Harrogate stands out from the crowd!

The town has always attracted the discerning shopper and this is never more true than at present.  When so much of our shopping for essentials takes place online, it’s refreshing to re-discover the experience of taking a little time to find something unique and perfect.  Take pleasure in browsing independent shops whose collections have been curated to provide something a little bit different.

Several of the main shopping streets radiate from the town’s open floral space around the Cenotaph – James Street is a thriving home to numerous boutiques, jewellers, booksellers, shoe shops, delicatessen/chocolatiers and a department store - whilst overlooking the 200 acre Stray Park, West Park is a favourite for shoppers seeking something very special to wear, then off to relax after some energetic retail therapy in an award-winning food hall’s cafe;  enjoy their outdoor seating area if the sun’s out.

A stroll down from the Cenotaph, through the immaculately kept Montpellier Hill Gardens, reaches the town’s Montpellier Quarter where the cobbled streets and iron street furniture are more reminiscent of continental Europe.  The area has long been notable for its antique shops and art galleries with a restaurant and café culture to match. 

Just a stone’s throw away, across the gardens bordered by the elegant Esplanade (home to the town’s popular Christmas Market) is the delightfully named Cold Bath Road, reminding us of the town’s spa town heritage.  A stroll up Cold Bath Road reveals a rich choice of cafes, restaurants and shops serving this vibrant residential area.

Many of the streets of Harrogate have their own unique personality and culture – Commercial Street, Beulah Street and Parliament Street, just to name a few well worth a visit.  And of course no prestigious shopping destination should be without its shopping centre – the Victoria Shopping Centre is conveniently located opposite the railway station on the site of the town’s previous market hall and is hugely popular with visitors to the town.

And for those with a little more time to spare – or perhaps on a mission for a special ingredient – King’s Road has developed quite a reputation for its food and drink offering.  A rich seam of shops include a greengrocer, florist, fishmonger, several delicatessens and an artisan bread shop.  Why go anywhere else to create the perfect feast?
