Thinking of moving to Harrogate, looking for advice

I am looking to complete a housing exchange to Harrogate and looking for advice on the area.

The house itself is postcode HG3 2UD (lincoln grove)

Currently living in Scarborough

I am a single parent with three littluns aged dd 12yrs, dd 2yrs and ds 1yr

Is this a good area to raise a family or is it a 'rough' area?

Are there activities for the kiddies (especialy the 12yr dd)?

Are there any colleges/further education centres or anything. Would love to go back to college/university to finish my degree or get extra qualifications.

Sorry for all the questions, never been there and don't know anyone living there (apart from the family hoping to swap lol)

TIA

Julie and family

Harrogate has everything you need good schools, access to HE and FE, facilities for young people-it is a great place to live. Also very handy for Leeds and some fab countryside.

Lots of info on Harrogate "official" websites
