Stay or Dine at
the Boars Head

Fascinating, Memorable and Entertaining

Ripley Castle and Gardens, situated 3 miles from Harrogate in North Yorkshire on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is an historic attraction open to the public all year round and makes for a fascinating and entertaining day out, in a beautiful location.

The Castle also makes the perfect setting for any corporate entertaining event whether it be a meeting or dinner. The setting is stunning, the service is friendly and efficient, and the catering is exceptional.

For weddings, Ripley Castle stands apart: It is beautiful, historic and picture postcard perfect.
