"[There is] fabulous shopping, cafe culture, fine cuisine, glorious gardens, a reputation for style, graceful architecture and a glamorous heritage as a classic European spa town," they explained.
Heading to the Turkish Baths will give tourists a real taste of historical Harrogate, the expert added, as well as the chance to kick back and relax.
