Harrogate in North Yorkshire.


15-min drive from Nidd Hall, HG1
Regularly voted the “happiest place to live” in Britain, the fashionable spa town of Harrogate has been welcoming tourists since the 16th century when its waters were a popular health treatment. Nowadays it’s home to the famous Betty’s Tea Rooms, Turkish baths, and Valley gardens.

York in North Yorkshire.


33-min drive from Nidd Hall, YO26 6QF
The above postcode will take you to Poppleton park and ride, by far the easiest way to explore this historic city. The ancient walls date back to Roman times, and within them you’ll find 30 museums, a wealth of independent shops and the National Railway Museum.

Knaresborough in North Yorkshire.


15-min drive from Nidd Hall, HG5
The market town of Knaresborough sits on River Nidd’s edge, the town centre perched atop the cliffs by the water. We recommend visiting on a Wednesday to enjoy the hustle-and-bustle of market day, the perfect opportunity to sample Yorkshire’s cheeses, pies, meats, beers, fish and more.
