Harrogate is a spa town in north Yorkshire in the north of England. It has historical buildings and beautiful gardens as well as lovely tearooms and cafes.

Harrogate dates back to 1332 and the town was made property of the Royal Crown. In 1571 William Slingsby discovered the first mineral well in Harrogate and the spa town became very popular. After WW1 there was a decline in the popularity of spa’s, this led the town of Harrogate to encourage business’s and companies to come to the town and use the conference facilities.
