HARROGATE

Harrogate

Harrogate is the natural springboard for Yorkshire, our largest most magnificent countryside. Harrogate is a natural spa town where the waters were discovered 400 years ago. The shopping is outstanding with a first class range of boutiques and shops, including Betty’s tea room.

KNARESBOROUGH

Knaresborough

Knaresborough is just four miles away and has an impressive viaduct over the spectacular gorge cut out by the river Nidd, which is overlooked by a Norman Castle. Old Mother Shipton was born here 500 years ago and you can now visit her cave and petrifying well.

YORK

York Minster

The Roman city of York is just 30 minutes drive and is a must for all visitors. York boasts over two miles of city walls, which circle the famous York Minster. There is excellent shopping and don’t forget to dine at the famous Bettys, fat rascal anyone?
