Harrogate – Thursday 7th December 2017

Harrogate is a beautiful Spa town in North Yorkshire – famous for its Spa Waters, Betty’s Tearooms and as being the destination that Agatha Christie chose when she did her famous disappearing act in 1926!  The Waterstones is in an attractive building and set over two floors with a very nice café.

There are (at least?) two theatre venues in Harrogate, the gorgeous, if unimaginatively titled Harrogate Theatre, and also the Royal Hall, in which we were lucky enough to get the last two tickets for the The Nutcracker, performed by the Russian State Ballet, which was simply magical.

We were in Harrogate for three nights, but could happily have spent longer in this lovely, vibrant town – I’m sure we’ll return some day.
