Harrogate & Skipton

Enjoy a relaxing overnight break to the attractive Victorian spa town of Harrogate and the lovely market town of Skipton.

Enjoy a relaxing break to the attractive Victorian spa town of Harrogate, located at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. Harrogate is renowned for its floral displays, famous tea-shops, Turkish baths, antique shops, acres of green lawns and the delightful Valley Gardens. We also visit the lovely market town of Skipton with its attractive tree-lined high street, 900-year-old castle, and famous canal basin where a narrowboat cruise is included along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.



The Hilton Doubletree Harrogate sits in beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking Harrogate and is only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre. Facilities include a restaurant and piano lounge plus a spa with indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and gymnasium. All bedrooms feature television, Wi-Fi, telephone, safe, iron / ironing board, hair dryer, mini bar and tea / coffee making facilities. Lift to all floors.

Day One

We travel across the Pennines into Yorkshire and on to the delightful spa town of Harrogate and the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. The afternoon is then free to explore Harrogate with its handsome historic buildings and verdant gardens, one of Yorkshire's most elegant destinations. Take a walk from the famous Betty's Tearooms down Montpellier Hill and experience the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the area. Take a stroll in the beautiful Valley Gardens and perhaps visit the Mercer Art Gallery and the Royal Pump Room Museum for a fascinating insight into Harrogate’s spa history.

Day Two

We leave Harrogate this morning and travel to the market town of Skipton with its canal basin and famous castle. Here we board a narrowboat for a relaxing cruise along a section of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal with an interesting commentary from the skipper. The high street in Skipton has retained its old-world charm, bustling with activity. Discover the delightful backwater that is Victoria Square, with its individual shops and cafés, or visit the canal basin, where warehouses have been converted into a mix of shops and restaurants. We depart after lunch and head home to North Wales.
