Happiness in Harrogate

Happiness in Harrogate

Perfect your smile and sharpen laughter lines by staying at ‘The Happiest Place to Live’ in the UK, with visits to Fountains Abbey, Studley Royal Water Garden and York’s epic walled city.

The heart of historic Harrogate is home to happiness, according to The Sunday Times and a happy heart’s a healthy place to start each day’s adventures.


Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden in Ripon overflows with joyful reflections, attracting birds and boasts to a landscape bursting with mirror-like ponds and ancient lime, oak and sweet chestnut trees.


Harrogate’s Royal Pump Room’s  famous sulphur waters once offered remedies for maladies in the 19th Century, while Mercer’s Art Gallery contains cures for human spirits within its fabulous collection of  paintings, sculptures, photography and craft.


At RHS Harlow Carr Botanical Gardens, summer is coming fusing flowerbeds with beautiful bulbs and seasonal blooms that send messages of merriment to all with an ear to listen.


And of course, there’s no ignoring the medieval marvels of York, where the grand old Duke of York Castle Museum drips with evidence of former inhabitants who’ve found this area, like the blushes of mother Nature, to be truly irresistible.
