About Us

Visit Harrogate is the official tourism body for the Harrogate District which includes Boroughbridge, Harrogate, Knaresborough, Masham, Pateley Bridge and Ripon and everything in between.  

Our key aims are:

To put this destination on the map – actively promoting our offer and developing our identity.
To attract more business and leisure visitors - who stay longer, spending more, come back again and spread the word.
To work together to deliver wonderful and memorable visitor experiences.

We have a small team based in the Harrogate Visitor Information Centre, and work with the Tourist Information Centres in Harrogate, Ripon, Knaresborough, Boroughbridge, Masham and Pateley Bridge as well as Welcome to Yorkshire.
