Harrogate is a beautiful spa town to the southeast of the Yorkshire Dales, famous for its teashops, flower shows, Turkish Baths, antique shops, and the Harrogate International Conference Centre.
The Cosmopolitan yet serene atmosphere of the town owes much to Harrogate's eminent past, as one of Europe's most famous spas.
Quality shopping facilities combine with excellent restaurants and tearooms, a fascinating theatre, welcoming pubs and wine bars and award-winning parks and gardens to offer that special ambiance.
The Stray, 200 acres of well tended grasslands, encircles the town centre while a short stroll away are the famous Valley Gardens, a true haven linked via the sweet-smelling pine woods with the 68 acre Harlow Carr Botanical Gardens.
Radiating from the town-centre are majestic buildings which provide evidence of Harrogate's illustrious past - the Royal Baths Assembly Rooms, its idyllic Turkish Baths still remain, and the Royal Pump Room Museum, housing the original sulphur well and a host of other treasures.
Places of interest to visit nearby include the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the beautiful market town of Knaresborough, Harewood House and Ripley Castle.
