We went here to watch David Essex in concert. And putting aside watching the fabulous Mr Essex live. I can honestly say that a night at the HIC is a wonderful experience. The place is modern, clean, beautifully presented and has a great theatre with excellant viewing from all the seats.. Would definately go again..

Visited the knitting and sowing exhibition, found it very dark the space between the units was narrow, the food on offer was substandard, and we only spent 2 hours in the hall before it became so busy that you couldn't see anything. The event at the show ground is far better so I would recommend trying that rather than the... More

We had pre-booked tickets for this show and parked in the official car park. Although we had disabled badges and parked in the appropriate place it was a long walk to the main entrance where we had to queue outside waiting to get in. The staff were not very helpful in gaining access and we were not allowed to go... More

Attended a large event which was spread over four days. I attended on third and the organisation was still first class. Amenities very good. Obviously mainly female attendees so they even rearranged the gents loos for females! Impressed on foresight.

Great exhibition centre with lovely facilities, including beautiful concert hall area! Have visited several times for the Knitting & Stitching shows. Very good location for railway station and excellent for Harrogate Town Centre.

I attended the OU graduation ceremony there. My experience has been coloured by the fact that I was temporarily on crutches. Access to main auditorium was up a very long but shallow gradient ramp, so was easy for me even with crutches. Staff were great finding my family and I suitable seating within the auditorium, and it was appreciated. It... More

Convenient for Harrogate centre. A lovely building - large, clean and comfortable. Most seats would have a good view. Acoustics are good. Worth a visit just to walk up the twisting stairway. The Jules Holland concert was like being invited to a large, private party. A wonderful evening.

Good location in the centre of Harrogate surrounded by many hotels B&B and guest houses. Staff very helpful and conference ran smoothly. Lecture theatre well set out. Good IT, sound and hearing. Comfortable seating with adequate leg room for me (5,6) but would imagine taller/longer legged people may struggle. One negative was smelly toilets and very poor water supply/pressure.

Fantastic place to host conferences, they have small rooms for meetings to large halls for major event. Have been here for many medical conferences. Plenty of hotels nearby and a large underground car park. There is a very large seated hall for the much larger conferences.

Thank Sohail R
