Built in the mid-nineteenth century as a large Victorian house set in beautiful gardens, the charming Cairn Hotel is perfectly located just a five-minute walk from the centre of Harrogate.

On Tuesday, after a hearty Yorkshire breakfast, you will be free to explore for yourself. There are lots of things to do very close by. RHS Garden Harlow Carr, the Mercer Art Gallery, Rudding Park Spa, the Turkish Baths, Stockeld Park, Brimham Rocks (National Trust) and Valley Gardens are all reachable within 30 minutes by car, some are even less than 15 minutes away by foot! There are also a selection of local microbreweries and pubs in Harrogate. Cold Bath Brewing Co and Clubhouse, Harrogate Brewing Co, Roosters Brewing Co Taproom and The Little Ale House are but just a few suggestions. If beer's not your thing, why not take a short trip out to Whittaker's Gin Distillery for a tour and tasting.

During the festive period, Stockeld Park transforms into a mesmerizing wonderland of twinkling lights at their Winter Illuminations and Christmas Adventure event. You can also check out the Harrogate Christmas Fayre, with eclectic mix of local traders and traditional European Christmas stalls, just a ten-minute walk from the hotel.
