Where to Meet

Using the Cenotaph as the point of reference. Head down the hill (Parliament Street) and take the first right - that is Oxford Street. Starling is about ten metres up the road on the right opposite Jojo Maman Bebe.

From the station, turn right and cross by the pedestrian crossing by the bus station. At the end of the row of shops, turn left and go straight on into the pedestrianised area with Harrogate Theatre on your right. Once pedestrianisation ends, carry on and Starling is on your left.
