For a gloriously genteel day out, Harrogate has you covered. The North Yorkshire spa town has been a high-society stop-off for centuries, ever since its curative waters put it on the map. Sink into thermal baths, stroll through manicured gardens, dip in and out of art galleries and antiques shops then sit down to afternoon tea at Bettys Café Tea Rooms – this bastion of bone-china cups and delicate desserts is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. Convinced? Here’s an itinerary for the perfect day in Harrogate.
