A traditional country hotel with Victorian-style rooms and a rich literary history in Harrogate – includes breakfast, three-course dinner and a cream tea

Harrogate is renowned for its Royal Pump Room, elegant spa buildings, inviting green spaces – including the beautiful RHS Garden Harlow Carr – and Bettys famous tearooms, all built over England’s strongest sulphur spring, which can still be sampled today. From its revolving doors to its famous glass-ceilinged Wedgwood Restaurant, The Old Swan harks back to its glorious heyday, exuding romance, mystery and a definite hint of old-school grandeur.

Crime-writing doyenne Agatha Christie famously 'disappeared' to this elegant retreat in 1926 – and it’s no mystery why, with 136 vintage Victorian bedrooms, genteel restaurant and bar and perfect setting among the undulating Yorkshire Dales. You know where to come for your next impromptu vanishing act.

Good to know

Any bookings made throughout the month of February will receive a complimentary upgrade to an Executive room.


There’s a touch of the vintage to The Old Swan’s boudoirs – Victorian proportions and elegant furniture belie a thoroughly modern undercurrent of amenities. All of this old-school grandeur comes wrapped with views of pretty Harrogate and the peaceful hotel gardens.

The Wedgwood Restaurant offers a genteel dining experience from a bygone era, when food and company were savoured and glass ceilings were created on a truly monumental scale. Seasonal menus shine a spotlight on the freshest of seasonal produce, sourced from the local region. Elsewhere, the intimate Library Restaurant, with its Victorian features and stained-glass windows, is the ideal spot for a private feast and the elegant Swan Lounge is a great place to indulge in a decadent afternoon tea.


The Old Swan is located in the chic spa town of Harrogate, in North Yorkshire. Fun fact: each July, the hotel hosts the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival. Nearby, Mercer Art Gallery houses a permanent fine art collection, plus two lively exhibition spaces, while Ripon Racecourse, Oakdale Golf Club and epic hiking terrain in the surrounding Yorkshire Dales are more than enough to keep you busy.

Travelling with kids?

You can count on a children's menu and highchairs in the restaurant here, making family dining a breeze. It's worth noting that not all rooms have bathtubs.
