Harrogate Spa was once a popular tourist destination because of its supposedly 'healing' waters, though today it is business tourism that draws travellers to this North Yorkshire town, thanks to one of Europe's largest exhibition centres.
Harrogate is a historic spa town and tourist destination in North Yorkshire. It is also a popular destination for business tourists, thanks to the Harrogate International Centre, a prominent exhibition centre. The town is picturesque, and renowned for a number of well-maintained gardens, including the RHS Harlow Carr Gardens, maintained by the Royal Horticultural Society. It often comes top – or, close-to-top – of polls concerning the best / happiest places to live in the country.
Business travellers coming to stay in our serviced apartments in Harrogate are usually coming for the exhibition centre, and we have apartments located directly opposite this crucial location. Although the waters of Harrogate are no longer the attraction they once were, there is an idyllic legacy, a sense of the refined echoing through the quaint teashops and antique emporiums. Agatha Christie famously ‘disappeared’ in Harrogate for a few days in the 1930s, and it’s not hard to see why.
The town is served by a quite impressive four railway stations, providing plenty of local links, plus services through to London via Leeds. Similarly, Leeds-Bradford Airport is only 10 miles away, offering a wide variety of flights for visitors to our Harrogate serviced apartments.
