Showcasing all of the reasons why Harrogate is the perfect place to host a conference, exhibition, meeting or event.
Harrogate is a vibrant Victorian spa town and rural district that contains the medieval city of Ripon, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Nidderdale and four charming but very different market towns; Boroughbridge, Knaresborough, Masham and Pateley Bridge, all located in the heart of Yorkshire surrounded by breath-taking outdoor space.
With an impressive Convention Centre at the heart of Harrogate town centre, a range of luxury hotels, an extensive Event Centre on the boundary, wide-open spaces set alongside glorious countryside, historic theatres and boutique meeting rooms, it’s easy to see why.
Whether you are looking for something a little different or just want to make this magnificent location the backdrop to an exceptional event, there is something to meet your event needs and more.
With excellent transport links, Harrogate is just 30 minutes from the bustling city centre of Leeds but offers a more relaxed pace without losing the cosmopolitan feel of a city. The surrounding areas of Boroughbridge, Knaresborough, Masham, Nidderdale, Pateley Bridge and the city of Ripon provide a range of outdoor spaces and activities as well as the perfect escape for some downtime after a busy day.
When you bring your event to the Harrogate district you don’t just benefit from the magnificent venues and the professional service they provide. You also bring your attendees to one of the most popular places to visit in Yorkshire, welcoming visitors since 1571.
Together with our partners, we showcase the Harrogate district to attract events and to create a strong local economy for businesses and residents. Our role is to provide comprehensive information for leisure and business visitors, create marketing campaigns and content, develop new opportunities and be the champions for what each of our destinations, and the area as a whole, has to offer as a place to live, work and visit.
