The largest farming and countryside show in England, held on
the 250 acre Great Yorkshire Showgrounds on the edge of the
beautiful spa town of Harrogate. The 'Main Ring' is the centre
attraction with everything from international show jumping to
the world-class cattle parade. You can also visit the popular
food hall, Cookery Theatre, fashion shows and a host of country
pursuit displays including falconry.
The tour is based in the 4 star Hilton Hotel in Leeds, just
15 minutes from Harrogate. We spend Tuesday at the show
(admission ticket included) and offer a choice on Wednesday.
You can return to Harrogate for another day at the show or to
spend some time in this charming floral town. Another option is
a day in Leeds, the shopping capital of Yorkshire (or exploring
the famous Armoury), or any combination of these you like. The
coach will travel to Harrogate in the morning, return to Leeds
around midday, going back to Harrogate in early afternoon and
finally picking up at the Showgrounds in Harrogate to return to
the hotel in time for dinner.
