If you can, we recommend leaving your car at home and travelling into Harrogate via public transport where possible – the Old Swan Hotel is a 10 minute walk from Harrogate Train Station which has excellent links to York, Leeds and London.
Parking is available at the Old Swan Hotel on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note, if using this car park, a valid permit must be displayed and be obtained for free from the hotel reception. There is also metered on-street parking nearby. Please be advised that Harrogate International Festivals does not accept responsibility for the provision of parking spaces or for any items left in vehicles while at the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival.
