Yorkshire is an astonishingly beautiful part of the country, not to mention a historically rich and culturally diverse area too. Few places though – even in ‘God’s own county’ – can match Harrogate for these qualities, and much more. Not only does it feel like the perfect representation of what Yorkshire can be, but often, also a picture-perfect snapshot of Britain as a whole.
For starters, there’s its mesmerising natural beauty. This is a town with a centre located a mere 13 miles from the magnificent Yorkshire Dales. If that isn’t the ideal example of how Harrogate manages to sensationally blend modern convenience with natural splendour, then we’re not sure what is.
It’s not just mother nature that gives Harrogate its famous good looks though. Having been first noted in the 14th century, the town is also filled with a sense of character in its layout and architecture. This gives it a general sense of individuality that can only be forged through a cultural stew that has been bubbling away for hundreds of years.
This rich history can be appreciated in its many buildings, museums and attractions, as well as sampling its passion for cuisine, art and theatre in fascinating venues across the town. It really is no wonder that Harrogate has been voted the happiest place to live in Britain.
