Overview & description
If you are looking for things to do in Harrogate and want to get to know all about the history and culture of our lovely Spa town then a walking food tour is a good idea. Of course, while learning all this history and sight-seeing, you might get hungry so would like to try some delicious yorkshire food and drink. You want to find out the best places to go to get this locally sourced food. What if you could find a knowledgeable local tour guide who could take you on a walk around the town pointing out the historical sights, giving you some insight into what it's like to live in Harrogate and could stop at several local independent restaurants, pubs or cafes to have a taste of what they have to offer. What a great way to spend an afternoon. A long lunch with a stroll inbetween courses. Welcome to the Harrogate Food Tour. It is such a great way to spend a day getting to know a town and tasting what food and drink they have to offer. You also find places you want to go back and visit again, try more of their food and drink. Harrogate has no shortage of places to eat and drink but where do you start! This gives you a taste of some of the popular places in Harrogate - places much loved by visitors and locals alike. The tour takes 3 hours. We walk about 1.4 miles, at a slow pace with only one slight uphill section. We stop at 5 places - three savoury, two sweet and one offers alcohol - but there are non alcoholic alternatives if you prefer. The tour takes place rain or shine so come prepare for the Harrogate micro-climate. At the majority of places we go inside to have our tastings but inbetween you will be outside so layers are best (and an umbrella). Don't have a big breakfast before you come and you will find you are pleasantly full by the end of the tour - both in food and in information. Harrogate has a rich cultural heritage from its Victorian Spa days and is still a great place to visit - there is more to us than an afternoon tea and a Turkish bath - great though they are! You will be in a small group of fellow foodies - or bring your own small group, it is a great experience to share with family or maybe for a friend's birthday or even for a hen party. You can call us with your own requirements and we will do our best to accommodate them. We can cater for different dietary requirements too. You will get to meet local business owners who are passionate about their food and drink and by supporting Yorkshire Appetite Food Tours, you are supporting several independent businesses in the town. Come along and enjoy the feast!
