According to historical records preserved at Harrogate Library, Cold Bath Road has a fascinating origin. Interestingly, much of its development predates 1850, and it follows a winding path, unlike the straight and carefully planned estate roads in the vicinity.

Moving into the mid-20th century, Cold Bath Road was home to a handful of local businesses, including Merrits’ grocers and Elizabeth’s café. Over time, it has transformed into a vibrant and independently spirited hub, boasting a diverse array of shops, cafes, and bars.

With over 50 charming establishments lining this half-mile stretch, offering everything from delis and bakeries to restaurants, clothing shops, pet stores, and hardware shops, it’s no wonder that Cold Bath Road remains a favorite destination for families and friends. This beloved area even maintains its presence on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram!

One of the enduring gems of this area is the William and Victoria Wine Bar, a family-run establishment that has been a staple of Harrogate for over four decades. Locals and spa visitors alike savor locally sourced food, Yorkshire gins, and hand-pulled pints here.
