With its handsome historic buildings and verdant gardens, Harrogate is one of Yorkshire's most elegant destinations. Harrogate is renowned for its smart little tearooms and classy cafés spilling out onto the pavements. The celebrated Betty's tea room was established in Harrogate in 1919, with queues still forming for their glorious afternoon teas. Enjoy some time perusing Harrogate's many fascinating shops in the Montpellier Quarter for antique treasures, high-end fashion, charming arts & crafts shops and bustling markets.


Haworth - Worth Valley Steam Railway

Home of the famous Brontë sisters, Haworth is an undisputed literary mecca, attracting visitors from all around the world. With its historic cobbled Main Street, iconic parsonage and rolling moors, the picturesque proportions of this Airedale village exude a vintage charm that makes you feel you've stepped into another era. The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway (KWVR) is an authentic heritage steam railway which runs through the heart of West Yorkshire's Bronte Country from the village of Oxenhope to Haworth, and then on down the Worth Valley to Keighley. Lovingly preserved, the KWVR line was used in the 1970 classic film version of E.E. Nesbitt's "The Railway Children" (starring Jenny Agutter, Sally Thomsett and Bernard Cribbins), and has also been used in countless other TV and cinema period dramas.
