Harrogate Fairs

The spa town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire has a fine tradition of art of antiques fairs.

Other fairs include The Pavilions of Harrogate Antiques & Art Fair run by Cooper events and The Yorkshire Antiques and Art Fair run by Bowman Antiques Fairs and held at the Great Yorkshire Showground.
