Famous for its cream teas and Turkish baths, Harrogate is England's classic spa town with quaint streets, historic houses, landscaped gardens and so many fun things to do. In Harrogate, life is slow-paced and serene—you can see why famous crime writer Agatha Christie hunkered down here incognito in 1926 after her marriage broke down. Alongside the genteel prettiness and relaxing baths the town is full of great independent shops, glorious antique stores and top-class cosy pubs serving excellent beer, all surrounded by rolling green hills. Just 40 minutes from Leeds and York, or 2 hours and 45 minutes from London, follow in Christie’s footsteps and explore this North Yorkshire haven.
