Attended a 2 day conference here in auditorium, ate onsite. Toilets etc seemed to be clean enough. Staff quite helpful. Centre offers discounted parking over 2 days in the underground car park, had to ask as no prior info on this.

Harrogate is something truly different in terms of a trade show, more of a pleasure than a chore such as NEC. Friendly and relaxed, the venue itself is somewhat of a "mishmash" nothing seems to follow on from anything, but on a glorious hot day it's nice to go and sit in the gardens with an ice cream whilst listening...

Beautiful venue, Lifts a bit confusing and one of the staircases which seems to go upstairs actually goes nowhere, very confusing. Staff very helpful and toilets could do with somethng nice and smelly in there to kill the smell. Can't understand why the escalotor only goes DOWN when people are coming in, surely it ought to go up then and... More

We have recently come back from attending a trade fair at this venue and although some of the buildings have seen better days, the venue as a whole is great - what a lovely location when we are more used to the NEC or Olympia!

We visited the country living Xmas fair held here and was really impressed with the size and facilities available even down to a cloakroom so we didn't have to carry our heavy winter coats around all day. We were last to leave and the staff waited for our lonely coats to be collected !

Harrogate Home & Gift Fair in July is a wonderful event in a wonderful exhibition centre but oh the catering!! Presumably it is franchised out so why use catering companies who provide appalling and cheap food at inflated prices?? It really let's the centre and Harrogate down badly. We had coffee and croissant/pain au chocolat in the morning... served by... More

A wonderful venue for large meetings there were over 2000 of us for the afternoon meeting with excellent facilities. Also over 1500 for the evenings entertainment. A very large area where we could display stands and stalls sit and chat and have tea or coffee.

Whatever happened to HIC as a gig venue? Up until about five years ago, there used to be regular concerts, maybe once a month, to a full (2000 seat) audience, and then they suddenly stopped. It was a great venue, brilliant sound, and lots of good performers - not generally the top arena type people, obviously, at a venue of... More
