Things to do in Harrogate

Harrogate is a Georgian town located in North Yorkshire; it’s renowned for its horticulture, historic buildings and spectacular backdrop of natural beauty. During the 17th century it became known as The English Spa due to the mineral waters discovered here. It attracted many sickly visitors who greatly contributed to the history and wealth of the town.

There are many interesting attractions in Harrogate to keep you occupied during your visit. Why not immerse yourself in a little local folklore at Mother Shipton’s Cave and the Petrifying Well? You could even discover the town’s rich past and explore the remains of Knaresborough Castle or Ripon Cathedral.

No matter where your interests lie, Harrogate’s sure to have something for you. The RHS Garden Harlow Carr’s floral displays are well worth a visit. You can explore on foot by day and at night many visitors flock to the Royal Hall Theatre to watch a play.
