    Harrogate

    Harrogate's heritage as a fashionable spa resort continues to the Montpellier Quarter, home to over 50 independent shops, pavement cafes and award-winning restaurants. With breathtaking surroundings, floral hanging baskets and cobbled streets, you will feel the traditional atmosphere of the area. Also known as the 'Antiques and Art Centre of the North', the area is vibrant and established.

    Harewood House & Gardens

    A beautiful country house built between 1759 and 1771 for Edwin Lascelles, Harewood House has Robert Adam-designed interiors, priceless art and a wonderful landscaped garden. The house was used as a major filming location for the ITV drama 'Victoria', and the Victorian era had a huge influence on the Harewood Bird Garden. Although the bird garden wasn't yet built when the young Princess Victoria visited Harewood in 1835, the era had a major influence on the zoo you can visit today.

    Historic York

    Founded by the Romans, York is a delightful city filled with enticing history. The Monk Bar gate houses an exhibition tracing the life of King Richard III. York Minster is also one of the world's largest cathedrals, complete with functioning two bell towers. Even the streets of York will speak to you with history, as you take a stroll along The Shambles, a medeival street. Overhanging timber-framed buildings characterise the street, with some dating back to the fourteenth century.
