Harrogate Convention Centre is in the centre of the town, within walking distance of restaurants, visitor attractions, shops and access to the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Harrogate is a Victorian spa town and rural district that contains the medieval city of Ripon, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and four charming but very different market towns: Boroughbridge, Knaresborough, Masham and Pateley Bridge. In the heart of Yorkshire the town offers indoor and outdoor activities – from mountain biking to rock climbing and abseiling, or just a bracing walk across the fells. For the more metropolitan, the reputation of Harrogate’s shopping streets for exquisite retail opportunities is well deserved and the town’s spa heritage is evident to this day with spa treatments new and old available.
Yorkshire prides itself on its food and drink, and Harrogate District flies this flag with pride, from the town’s own gin, to the delicious local produce. As well as familiar names you will find independent restaurants offering carefully prepared ingredients served to please the eye as well as the appetite.
