A truly quintessential Victorian spa town, Harrogate is associated with a special sort of old-fashioned Englishness – the kind that seems the preserve of retired army majors and formidable dowagers. Tourist flock to Harrogate to enjoy the flower shows and gardens that fill the town with magnificent displays of colour in spring and autumn. The town's most famous resident was Agatha Christie, who fled here incognito in 1926 to escape her husband. Whilst Harrogate remains a stalwart for visitors in their golden years, the town has plenty of glamorous hotels and fashionable eateries catering to the boom of the conference trade; where dynamic sales-and-marketing guns eat and sleep.
