The leading venue for weddings, meetings and celebrations In North Yorkshire.

The Pavilions of Harrogate is a flexible and versatile venue that can accommodate a range of events from a glittering awards dinner for 500 to new vehicle launches for 350 delegates.

Located on the Great Yorkshire Showground and offering 2,300 square metres of internal space over 14 rooms, the President’s Suite has undergone a stunning refurbishment, combining contemporary with elegance.

Our creative and passionate in-house team work hard to ensure that your event is a success, with  complimentary car-parking and free Wi-Fi as well as flexibility to create a bespoke package to suit your needs. The venue is fully accessible, we have rooms that have vehicle access and all of them are pillar free.

All of our food is locally sourced which is fundamental to our charity Yorkshire Agricultural Society (YAS), as we are all about supporting local farmers and suppliers. For many event organisers, the Pavilions of Harrogate fulfils their corporate responsibility as all profits go back to YAS to promote and support the agricultural community. This can be from organising free Countryside Days for 6,000 primary school children to farmer health checks which may save a life.

Pavilions of Harrogate was initially built in 1996 and it hosts the Royal Family during visits to the Great Yorkshire Show. Word has spread about our first class facilities and team, and we now host over 600 events throughout the year, including conferences, meetings, exhibitions, public sales, funerals, weddings, gala dinners, charity balls and special events.

We have recently achieved a Green Tourism Award along with a series of business tourism awards. Our Sales Manager Ben Chatburn has been awarded a national honour after achieving a place on the  coveted 2019 miaList. Sustainability is very much front of mind and we no longer use single use plastic straws and our caterers have replaced all their disposable plates with compostable or 100% recyclable alternatives.

All our profits go to charity

All our profits fund the work of our charity, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society. The Yorkshire Agricultural Society aims to unite rural life in Yorkshire with leadership, commitment, passion and creativity. This is done by organising educational events for children and families, supporting the environment, sponsoring events and conferences, grants, promoting careers in agriculture, developing skills, and knowledge transfer.

Many clients choose Pavilions of Harrogate because it’s an amazing venue and it also helps them achieve their Corporate Social Responsibility goals.
