In VisitBritain's 2018 survey of event delegates, Harrogate came in the UK's top five destinations and first choice for visitors who would choose to return to an event city.
Harrogate Convention Centre has been evolving as an event venue for more than a century and is now one of the North’s biggest and best multi-purpose congress spaces.
The site comprises a 2000-seat main auditorium, the historic 1000-seat Royal Hall theatre and eight event halls giving you around 13,700m2 of space for conferences, exhibitions, trade shows, banqueting or other events. The Queen’s Suite, a flexible breakout space for up to 600, can also be sub divided into smaller seminar or meeting rooms.
Another great thing about Harrogate Convention Centre is that it’s right in the heart of one of the most vibrant and beautiful towns in the UK. When you’ve finished at Harrogate Convention Centre for the day you’ll be spoilt for choice from the dozens of great restaurants, bars and cafes all within an easy stroll of the venue.
