Discover the town of Harrogate

Discover the town of Harrogate

Harrogate is a spa town in north Yorkshire and is a popular tourist destination, as well as being a great place to settle down.

There are plenty of lovely areas surrounding the town, including the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - making it ideal for anyone who enjoys getting some exercise in the fresh air.

Keen gardeners will also be pleased to discover Harrogate is close to the RHS Harlow Carr gardens, which are perfect for a day out, especially as the weather starts to warm up.

The town itself has around 70,000 residents and in a survey in 2013, it was named as one of the happiest places to live in the whole of the UK. This of course, means there are plenty of people looking for property for sale in Harrogate, but there are still plenty of bargains available for those on a tight budget.

One of the major attractions for tourists visiting the region is the Harrogate spa water, which contains iron, sulphur and common salt - it was thought to provide healing powers for those who were sick and helped support the development of the local community.

In terms of transport links, Harrogate has a railway station and a bus station that provide services to Leeds and Rippon, as well as York and Skipton.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801781683-ADNFCR
