Harrogate is a beautiful town in one of the most beautiful areas of the British Isles. Situated just to the North of the sprawling conurbation of Leeds and Bradford and to the South of the rugged Yorkshire Moors, Harrogate is the perfect blend of the best of all worlds.

Harrogate is sophisticated and grand, yet it still retains its small town homely charms. It can be a serene and peacefully picturesque place but is also lively enough to be one of the premier Conference venues in the World.

One thing you must do if you visit Harrogate is go to Betty's Tea Rooms... well, that's the tradition. James Herriot, Emma Thompson - they did it. But the most important activity is exploring the surrounding towns and villages. For instance, 2 miles away, on the banks of the River Nidd, Knaresborough is quite spectacular.
