The Harrogate BID, Harrogate Chamber of Commerce and a number of local businesses have joined together in preparation for a very special visit from Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal.

The Grade 2 listed buildings of Prince Albert Row are home to some of the town’s longest established and respected businesses in Harrogate including Woods Fine Linens.

With this imminent visit from The Princess Royal the business owners – with the support of The Harrogate BID and Harrogate Chamber of Commerce – have been ensuring Prince Albert Row looks its best. With works underway on the exteriors and the street furniture receiving a new coat of paint.

Led by Woods Fine Linens, a beautiful leaflet, highlighting the businesses within Prince Albert Row has been designed, printed and distributed to hotels and tourist information centres across the region.

The aim of the leaflet is to promote the beautiful conservation area and the long established businesses within the row.

Matthew Chapman, Harrogate BID Manager said: “We’re pleased to be supporting the royal visit throughout our in-house street ranger repainting street furniture, presenting additional floral displays on Prince Albert Row as well as helping the businesses distribute their new leaflet.”

“The royal visit is certain to further shine a spotlight on Prince Albert Row and Harrogate as a great place to visit, for its beautiful buildings as well as fantastic shops.”

Martin Mann, Acting Chief Executive Officer Harrogate Chamber of Commerce added: “We are all looking forward to welcoming The Princess Royal to Harrogate and working together to ensure she gets to see us at our best.”
