Centuries of history and human activity have left Harrogate and the surrounding district with some truly captivating outdoor spaces for you to explore this autumn and winter.
Whether it is for fresh air, getting some exercise or just the chance to stretch the legs - you can find some new and inspiring surroundings with us.
Our outdoor places of interest also provide the confidence of visiting an open space where social distancing is easily and reliably achieved so you can enjoy your day with friends and family.
Form open-air points of interest, to reservoirs that brim with wildlife, historic houses and ruins you can explore and discover with friends and family this winter. Many of these open air spaces are dog friendly and a great place for children to run around and burn off energy.
