Harrogate for health and happiness

Take a look inside our then and now take on Harrogate's unique approach to health and wellbeing.

Harrogate is a town built around its wonderful waters.

Thanks to funding from The British Society for the History of Science our scientist in residence Matt Holmes has been helping us to explore how waters and medical treatments have been used in Harrogate over time.

Find out about how light therapy, physio, massage and medical pedicures are still offered in Harrogate today, drawing on the heritage of treatments which began here over a century ago.
