    NEW ! Treetop Nets, Lightwater Valley


    Pioneered in the Lake District and awarded "Best Visitor Attraction in England" in its first year of operation, Treetop Nets’ Yorkshire site, which is located next to Lightwater Valley Theme Park, boasts 2000m2 of giant trampolines, walks and slides all contained within hand-made 3m high rope nets and suspended between trees up to 50ft off the ground. Treetop Nets

    Treetop Nets is suitable for everyone aged three and upwards, ventures higher into the trees than its Lake District sibling and uses enough rope to run the entire length of Hadrian’s Wall. It also features exciting new additions including a gigantic aerial ball pool, a tree house and a 50-foot high crows nest.

    No prior experience or skills are necessary, just a "have a go" attitude and bags of energy (maximum weight restriction of 120kgs applies).

    While visiting Lightwater Valley why not pop into Treetop Nets and their staff will be more than happy to give you a quick look around?

    Pre-booking is strongly recommended by telephoning 01539 447186 or booking online at 

    Please note: TreeTop Nets is a separate attraction to the theme park and is not included in a theme park day ticket.

    What makes Harrogate the happiest town in England?

    For the third year in a row, Harrogate was voted England’s happiest town in 2015. Meera Dattani finds out what about this North Yorkshire town makes it such a smiley stronghold.

    “You have to go to Bettys,” everyone says. “And you have to go to the Turkish Baths.”

    Champagne bubbles, three tiers of sandwiches, scones and cakes, pianist tinkling away, and views of picturesque Harrogate… Betty’s Tea Room does deserve its reputation. You might want to raise a glass to the Duchess of Bedford too, who allegedly invented afternoon tea after finding the gap between lunch and dinner too long, the poor thing.

    Harrogate, in North Yorkshire, found fame as a spa town and people flocked to ‘take the waters’ after William Slingsby discovered the first natural spring back in 1571.

    North Bar opened its Harrogate branch in February 2016 and serves craft beers and Prosecco on tap in the evenings. This dual identity is also something of a trend. Café/bar Hoxton North, vision of a London couple who moved to Harrogate, hosts evening films and talks in their ‘Hoxton North Presents’ programme, while Slingsby’s is experimenting with comedy and art events in its upstairs space.

    “When a lot of creative people do interesting things, you feel it,” says one local. At the Spirit of Harrogate in the Montpellier Quarter, their artisan Slingsby gin is proving a hit.
