Where to Drink in Harrogate
This Yorkshire drinking goldmine is well known for its relaxed nightlife and casual boozing scene. It's a refreshing mix of the new and the old where traditional pubs are met at the same rate as fashion-forward bars.
You can grab a pint from any of the free houses that often occupy street corners, or take to Cheltenham Parade where you'll find a few craft beer joints and all-day hip bars. The compact, and yet super leafy green, nature of the town is perfect for a spot of hen drinking because anyone can come along for the wild (or not!) ride; every bar is in easy walking distance.
Sights & Sounds
Culture vultures can enjoy a slice of history at the Royal Pump Room Museum which shows how the town has rubbed shoulders with Russian royalty and how the spa became world renowned attracting the rich and famous from around Europe.
If your Harrogate Hen Party needs to blow away a few cobwebs after a big night out then Valley Gardens or nearby Ripley Castle will get you out into the great outdoors and put some colour back in everyone's cheeks.
