In Harrogate, there are several parking areas signposted in the town centre. The nearest to the start is the Jubilee car park. It is easily accessed by public transport being close to the station and bus routes and within easy walking distance of the town centre.
In York, there are some parking areas signposted just outside the city centre but we recommend using public transport as the train station is very central. There is also a park and ride scheme operating from the edge of York.
We would recommend that these tours are suitable for those from the teenage years upwards. Some tours serve alcohol and so those under 18 will be offered a non-alcoholic alternative.
Absolutely not! Yorkshire Appetite Food Tour provides a unique walking experience that combines architectural sights and local history and a culinary insight into the best of Harrogate and York’s independent food and drink scene.
