Harrogate Aerial View

The McCarthy’s Removals Feature Locations series extends further into North Yorkshire taking an in-depth look at the historic spa town of Harrogate. Twinned with the New Zealand capital of Wellington and its namesake in Tennessee, USA – Harrogate has become an affluent area of the UK and a highly visited area.

Known as “The English Spa”, Harrogate has become famous for two things – its water and as an area of blissful living. Harrogate has been voted as the “happiest place to live” in Britain on a consistent basis since 2013. And it’s easy to see why. Blessed with grand architecture as well as rural feel to its town centre – Harrogate has grown to become one of the most sought after destinations for homeowners and tourists in the country. With a town centre bustling with shops, restaurants and bars, Harrogate quickly opens up to the Stray which is a huge park area in the centre of Harrogate which is a huge attraction.

Extremely great service

5 Stars

Overall safe and effective storage although my unit occasionally leaked when it rained.The continual fee increases during Covid were unacceptable and my complaints received no reply. Compulsory insurance issued by McCarthys is another rip off factor.

Brilliant overall experience will definitely recommend and use again
