Harrogate, North Yorkshire

Review of Harrogate by vikki hayes on April 7th, 2010
Harrogate was not as nice as I imagined. Hearing how clean and colourful it is was completely the opposite to what I saw when I visited for a weekend to a friend's. It wasn't as clean, bright and colourful, and the shops were not any different to most other large towns. York and Ilkley have a Betty's tea room so the tea room in Harrogate is just another. I was also shocked at the condition and drabness of the houses and buildings surrounding the actual town. Quite a mess to be honest. There's also it's fair share of council areas and litter on streets. I also found some people not very friendly and gave the impression of cliquishness. A lot don't smile neither. Harrogate was supposed to be fairly up market but I'm sorry to say I have seen up market places and Harrogate is far from it. The traffic was also a big shock to see so much. First and last visit for me.

Review of Harrogate by Francis P Pumford on May 27th, 2009
Just come back from a week in a motorhome on the Harrogate Showground.A town that I really liked,retained the character & pleasant streets,buildings & shops that a lot of other towns have foolishly lost.The frequent showers of last week didn't dampen the pleasure we had.Using the excellent bus services from the local bus station,we visited other close by towns through the beautiful countryside,travelling through picturesque villages.The only chrititism I would have is a town with CITY priced beer.

Harrogate. A wonderful place to visit both for shops and scenery. Strongly recommend a short stay at Nidd hall..... fantastic.
