Christmas Lights

The Streets are sparkling underneath the bright lights of over 10,000 LED bulbs, bringing some much-needed festive cheer at such a difficult time for so many.

The streets have been adorned with Glitter Garlands, mini drop lights, and chasing rope lights to add a ‘touch of magic’ by creating an animated ceiling of light and great atmosphere, not forgetting the traditional Christmas tree on the Stray.


North Pole Post Office

The North Pole Post Office: Harrogate Branch, is open for business and is ready to bring the magic of Christmas to town.

Father Christmas wants to hear from the children of Harrogate! Post your letter at the North Pole Post Office, and we’ll make sure your letter gets to the man himself. He may even write back.



This December will be one to remember, as the #HarrogateElf is here to help get Harrogate into the Christmas spirit!

Sent from the North Pole on a special mission, the Harrogate Elf keeps a perfect watch during the day. But, when the shops close and the lights go out, he can’t help but cause mischief across the town.


Christmas Trail

After the huge success of the Halloween Trail last month, Harrogate Mumbler is delighted to be working with Harrogate BID once again to give families a fun, safe and completely free Christmas trail.

Once you have found ten images, you can exchange your answer sheet for a small prize at all participating retailers. With a choice of routes to suit little, or long legs, all the family can enjoy the Christmas trails this December.
