Come and explore the town of Harrogate with us. We will be based in the heart of Harrogate, a Victorian spa town resplendent with famous tearooms, Turkish baths, antique shops and plenty of historical charm.
Check-in at your hotel. When evening comes, we can enjoy a welcome drink with other Solos guests before dinner in the hotel restaurant.
Friday morning after breakfast we explore the town with a guided tour. Look out for the Royal Pump Rooms, the stunning Valley Gardens as well as the lovely Betty’s Tea Rooms. The afternoon is then free to explore and relax on our own.
On Saturday after checking out, you may like to explore the local area before heading home.
Located just a short walk from the town centre, this lovely Victorian hotel has history dating back nearly 200 years. It caused a stir when Agatha Christie retreated here after famously disappearing for 11 days!
Have dinner in the elegant Wedgwood Restaurant before relaxing in the Library lounge with a drink.
Our comfortable bedrooms feature Freeview TV and radio, tea/coffee-making facilities and hairdryer.
The hotel is located off Junction 45 off the A1 and then exit onto the A661 to Harrogate. Harrogate station is 1 mile away. Car park is £10.00 per day per car. Parking is regulated by the Council and you must display a valid permit which can be collected from reception on arrival.
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% off the metered fare.
The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart with gentlemen requested to wear a shirt and tie. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
Had the best time with Solos! Discovered beautiful destinations and met some lifelong friends.
