LNER Azuma services make Harrogate the ‘Delegates Choice’


The Harrogate Convention Centre team invite you to discover six new LNER Azuma services direct between London KX and why event professionals voted Harrogate as the ‘Delegates Choice’.


*Harrogate is recommended by 96% of delegates and voted first choice for return visits (Visit Britain’s Business Event Survey).

The venue is a premium purpose-built conference and exhibition centre located in the heart of one of the safest, most attractive and welcoming towns in England.

This historic spa town is situated in the middle of the UK, right next to the stunning Yorkshire Dales. Access is easy by road, rail or air with Leeds Bradford Airport just 12 miles away. In 2019 LNER introduced six new Azuma trains direct between London.

Facilities include a world-class conference auditorium, the splendid Royal Hall and 13,700 m2 flexible event space along with onsite parking and adjacent hotels. Further parking and numerous quality hotels are available in easy walking distance

Main Auditorium

The venue offers organisers excellent value with in house AV services, transparent pricing, seasonal rates and opportunities for long term contracts. Our award-winning event teams pride themselves on exceptional client service. Our catering partners also boast a Royal Warrant for services to HRH The Queen.

This year we welcome Prime Minister and The Conservative Party Spring Forum plus many more prestigious conference and exhibition events.


Harrogate is a walking town, so when delegates have finished for the day, they can enjoy a relaxing stroll around the vibrant town centre and choose from many attractions including beautiful parks and gardens plus a full range of excellent restaurants, bars, independent shops and entertainment options.


Where others may claim a central location, Harrogate is geographically right in the middle of the country and well-served by all major transport links making it accessible from all corners of the UK and beyond.

The venue is just 20 mins from Leeds/Bradford Airport and British Airways run daily flights from Heathrow. Harrogate train station is linked to all major cities and LNER Azuma services run six times a day between London Kings Cross with delegate discounts available through the venue. Plus access by car is easy from both the North and South with A1/M1/M62 motorway networks just 20 mins away.


From big name, trusted hotel chains, to country houses and the great British B&B.

Most of the town’s 2000 plus beds are within a short walk of Harrogate Convention Centre and we are directly connected to 321 rooms thanks to the integrated Premier Inn and Crowne Plaza.

We also work with two concierge services who can support you and your event all the way when it comes to sourcing and booking accommodation.
