Harrogate railway station dates back to 1862. Originally designed by the architect Thomas Prosser, the station was the first structure in Harrogate built of brick, but in the 1960s, it was largely torn down and replaced by the existing, more utilitarian building. In the summer, pretty flowerbeds and hanging gardens around the station nod to the town's famous Harlow Carr Botanical Garden.

Trains to Harrogate arrive right in the centre of town, with the main attractions within a few minutes' walk. Harrogate's Turkish Baths and Health Spa have been offering visitors much-needed respite since the 1800s, and The Royal Pump Room Museum, in its grade II listed building, explores the history of what some consider to be England's premier spa town. For food, a good bet is Betty's Tearooms, the town's queen of finger food located in the illustrious Montpellier Quarter, the Antiques and Art Centre of the North.
