Harrogate sign

Harrogate is in North Yorkshire, but an extension to our West Yorkshire travelcards allowed us to visit and collect it. We arrived via a short walk from Hornbeam Park just to the south.

The station frontage, to the west of the line, is in two parts. The new modern ticket concourse sits at the bottom of a tower block:

The forecourt in the angle between this new building (on the right) and the old building (on the left) is a car park:

The pier just to the left of the old station frontage in the previous photo supports an extension of the station footbridge, crossing the road to the shopping centre on the left:
