Enjoy old-fashioned English charm in Harrogate

Harrogate, North Yorkshire

Grand Turkish baths, exclusive shopping, gardens and old-world teashops: the elegant spa town of Harrogate is all about style and relaxation.

The graceful town of Harrogate was once the favoured destination of European high society. Today it is still a vibrant, cultural destination with elegant streets full of exclusive shops and an abundance of great places to eat and drink. 

Book yourself in for indulgent spa treatments at the famously flamboyant Turkish baths. Or experience the quintessential English afternoon tea at Bettys Tea Rooms. Wander through the charming cobbled streets of the Montpellier Quarter for independent shops, antiques dealers and fine art galleries. Explore the tree-lined avenues and stylish arcades to find exclusive boutiques and labels alongside high street brands.  

Take in an exhibition at the Mercer Art Gallery or a show at one of the theatres.  Amble through your pick of formal gardens or simply enjoy the central park known as The Stray.  

Harrogate is in the North of England, a 3-hour train journey from London.
