Harrogate is set amidst the beautiful North Yorkshire Dales and is close to the historical city of York and bustling metropolis of Leeds. The town itself is known as the Hampstead of the North due to the famous Stray – 200 acres of parkland that is protected by an act of Parliament. Considered the ‘happiest’ place to live in the UK, in 2013 Harrogate was also declared the third most romantic destination in the world, beating Paris, Rome and Vienna.
Harrogate’s elegance and style draws from its 18th century history when it became the spa town of choice for its wealthy visitors. Since those days it has left a legacy of elegant architecture, green open spaces and beautiful parks and gardens, including the award-winning Valley Gardens and Royal Horticultural Society’s Harlow Carr. The waters can still be enjoyed to this day at the luxurious Turkish Baths.
The town also offers a lot in the way of retail therapy with plenty of independent, antique, designer and high-street shops, to ensure there is shopping for everyone whether you are on the cobbled streets of the Montpellier Quarter or the tree lined avenues of the main streets.
A spot of shopping, a leisurely lunch, a wander through the gardens, afternoon tea and you will soon find yourself slowing down to enjoy the leisurely pace of this relaxed town.
Whether you want a room for the evening, a bite to eat, or to share The West Park experience with someone special, we have got something for you.
