Set in 250 acres of beautiful showground, Pavilions of Harrogate is blessed with being on the cusp of the spa town of Harrogate while being surrounded by countryside. There’s plenty of green space, private lawns surround the building and free parking for over 500 cars right outside the front doors. We’re just two miles from Harrogate Train Station, 13 miles from Leeds Bradford Airport and a stone’s throw from the A1.
We’re a versatile space, holding a wide range of events throughout the year from conferences to charity balls, corporate meetings to product launches, weddings to christenings, birthday parties to public sales and exhibitions. If it’s a remembrance event or funeral, please be assured we will handle the organisation sensitively and appropriately with a view to ensuring it runs as smoothly as possibly for you.
Pavilions of Harrogate takes on an important role during the Great Yorkshire Show, hosting Royal visitors and VIP guests during England’s premiere agricultural event.
Weddings can be an indoor or outdoor affair with a sparkly new White Pavilion which has recently been licensed for civil ceremonies and is the perfect place for an outdoor ceremony. Whether it’s an intimate affair for ten guests to a huge party for 450, we can cater for all sizes in any of our 14 rooms and if you want to go one bigger we can offer our sister venue Yorkshire Event Centre which is also on the showground. Pavilions of Harrogate has become a favourite for Asian Weddings and Jewish Weddings thanks to our work with suppliers who are best in the business as well as our understanding of cultural specialities.
Our reputation for serving food fit for a Queen (literally!) is thanks to our first class caterers who support farmers and food producers from across Yorkshire. Not only is local produce served in Pavilions of Harrogate, it can also be found in our sister food hall and café Fodder also on the showground.
Harrogate is one of the UK’s leading conferencing and events towns, offering a wealth of hotels and B&Bs while the showground is also home to the award winning Harrogate Caravan Park which is a five minute walk away.
