Hello again! Welcome back to our brand new Harrogate Lifestyle Apartments Blog! #HarrogateLifestyleBlog
Discover why Harrogate was chosen as one of The Sunday Times Best Places to Live 2022 in their words...
"Harrogate has probably not looked this fashionable since about 1842, when The Royal Pump Room opened. A little more than a decade later, a visiting Charles Dickens noted: “Harrogate is the queerest place with the strangest people in it, leading the oddest lives of dancing, newspaper reading and dining.” There are still reassuring vestiges of starchier times — Bettys Café (traditional afternoon tea, £21.95), and Valley Gardens, with its carpet-bedding and Sunday afternoon bandstand concerts — but these days, it’s definitely all about ease of living and everything within strolling distance.
Among the attractions: The Stray, 200 green open acres in the middle of the town centre; RHS Garden Harlow Carr, one of the leading gardens in the region; the Great Yorkshire Show every July; Harrogate Convention Centre and Harrogate Theatre hosting events and big-name acts – Paloma Faith is here in June; the Blues Cafe Bar, with live music every night of the week; and a branch of The Ivy, which opened in 2017.
It’s all about being in the mix. Harrogate is still a safe place for relocating younger families and second-steppers, often from London and the Southeast, who want all the fun and fresh air of being “up North” without the grim and gritty bits — but now it has a little more pizzazz."
