The local area
Renowned as a spa town since the area’s water was first discovered in the 16th century, Harrogate is a place with a strong Georgian and Victorian heritage. It is characterised by draws such as the majestic nearby countryside and bustling town centre tea rooms; offering a quieter way of life than large cities in the area such as Leeds.
It is still very much in touch with these metropolises however, with a train to Leeds taking around half an hour – with extra commuter services put on at peak times – while Manchester can be reached in just over an hour and a half, and London in three hours. The A59 provides fairly swift access to the A1(M), while Leeds Bradford Airport is only 10 miles from the town centre.
There is a selection of excellent schools for families with children to consider, including St Joseph’s, Markington C of E and Grove Road Community at primary level. Notable secondary options include Harrogate Grammar, St Aidan’s C of E High and Harrogate High, a specialist Sports College.
