What to do in Harrogate

About Harrogate

Located amidst the rolling hills of the North Yorkshire countryside, Harrogate is a Victorian-era spa town known for its quaint atmosphere and surrounding scenery. The town is served by excellent rail links to both Leeds and York, where passengers can connect to onward services to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and London. Leeds-Bradford Airport is just 11 miles from the centre of Harrogate and is directly connected to the town via the 737 bus service. The town is compact and easily explored on foot. Stroll from the famed Betty's Tea Rooms to the Valley Gardens for an afternoon spent in the charming landscaped grounds on the periphery of the town. It's quick and easy to book Harrogate hotels with eDreams using the well-designed website. You can choose to sort available properties by the cheapest first, those with the most stars, distance from the centre of town or by a combination of price and previous reviews. If particular facilities such as parking or free wifi are important to you, simply select these in the filter bar on the left of the screen. eDreams also clearly highlights price drops so you can be sure that you see the best hotel offers.

What to see in Harrogate

No visit to Harrogate is complete without calling in the esteemed cafe, Betty's. This sought-after tea room has been a staple of the town for almost 100 years and the coffee, cream teas and cakes are known for being a cut above - not to mention the elegant decor. Harrogate's Turkish Baths are how the town initially gained notoriety and are still one of the major draws to the city today. Their Moorish design is reminiscent of the baths of Istanbul, with wonderful Yorkshire hospitality to match. Cold Bath Road boasts a collection of charming independent shops where you can shop for anything from clothes to household items at boutique-style stores. The Mercer Art Gallery is housed in a former spa and today has collections from a number of 19th and 20th century artists - perfect for a rainy afternoon. For a breath of fresh air, take a trip to the RHS Garden Harlow Carr. Located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this woodland features plants from around the world and is bursting with colour and fragrance. And, if you didn't manage to beat the lines at Betty's in town, there is another one here in the most picturesque and tranquil of settings.

Where to stay in Harrogate

Owing to Harrogate's compact size, most of the hotels are located within a small radius of the town centre, which takes just 15 minutes to cover on foot at a leisurely pace. The benefits of a Harrogate hotel in the centre include being close to the pubs and restaurants and easy access to the train station. However, if you're seeking a hotel in a countryside setting then you might want to consider booking a Harrogate hotel a little further afield. The villages of Kettlesing, Hampswaite and Birstwith are situated to the west of the town and are ideal locations to book cheap hotels for visiting the Yorkshire Dales National Park, while still being within easy reach of the delights of Harrogate via the A59. For easy access to the Harrogate Golf Club, Calcutt is nestled between Harrogate and Knaresborough and just 1.5 miles from the course.
