All About Harrogate: A Beautiful Northern Spa Town

If you’re looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful Yorkshire location, you could hardly do better than the spa town of Harrogate.

Harrogate is one of the most affluent towns in North Yorkshire, attracting a great number of visitors from surrounding areas. For the last three years, it has been voted the happiest place in the country to live.

Many around the country and even around the world know Harrogate for Betty’s café, the Stray parklands and its spa waters. It is also recognised for its stunning beauty, often winning RHS Britain In Bloom awards. It serves as a popular destination for tourists both nationally and internationally. Despite that however, it is never crowded or overrun by tourists, instead maintaining a steady pace of life.

If you’re planning a trip to Harrogate, you won’t find yourself short of things to do. Visiting the stunning parks and gardens in the area could occupy a weekend by itself. Why not stroll among the Stray parkland and Valley Gardens in the heart of the town, or pay a visit to the beautiful Harlow Carr gardens when it’s in full bloom.

Afterwards, why not relax with afternoon tea in the original Betty’s café…or a show at the Royal Hall or Harrogate Theatre!

Harrogate is a popular destination for business and recreational travellers due to the extensive conference facilities. The Harrogate International Conference Centre is home to countless yearly events including the BBC’s Good Food Show and the Harrogate Art and Antique Fair (the Eurovision Song Contest was even hosted here!) The Great Yorkshire Showground and the Pavilions of Harrogate also host hundreds of events throughout the year, including for over 150 years the Great Yorkshire Show, which is the largest agricultural show in England.

Harrogate is also famed for its spring waters, long said to have healing properties. Whether or not that’s true, a long weekend break in the town itself is sure to help you unwind and escape the pressures of life elsewhere.

There’s always something going on in Harrogate, and our staff at The Lawrance will be happy to point you in the direction of the current goings-on, top places to eat and drink in Harrogate, and more. Why not start planning your trip now? We’ll be delighted to welcome you to our town, contact us today to book your stay at our luxury aparthotel Harrogate accommodation close to the town centre!
