Overview & description

The award winning Pavilions of Harrogate is a versatile venue with a Royal seal of approval. 

This is where Royal visitors are hosted when they visit the Great Yorkshire Show – 11 in total - including HRM The Queen.

And the Pavilions strives to treat all its guests like Royalty as the rest of the year it hosts a range of events from weddings to business lunches, award dinners and parties in any of its 14 rooms.

It’s a special year for Pavilions of Harrogate itself as it celebrated its 21st birthday after opening for the very first time in 1996.

As winner of Yorkshire’s Business Tourism Award in Welcome to Yorkshire’s White Rose Awards 2016, the Pavilions of Harrogate is the perfect place for any celebration.

Based on the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate, all profits raised go to help fund the work of the registered charity, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society (YAS).

Since 1996, the Pavilions of Harrogate has hosted:

  • 11 Royal visits
  • Over 500 weddings
  • Over 1,470 social events
  • 485 exhibitions
  • Over 7,000 corporate events

It includes 14 rooms, 250 acres of outdoor space and free parking. 

The Pavilions of Harrogate is part of charity Yorkshire Agricultural Society which owns onsite café Fodder, Yorkshire Event Centre, Harrogate Caravan Park as well as hosting annual events Great Yorkshire Show, Countryside Live and Springtime Live.  Events at the Great Yorkshire Showground contribute £47 million a year to the local economy. All profits go back in to the Yorkshire Agricultural Society.
