Harrogate District Chamber of Commerce

Harrogate District Chamber of Commerce is the one of the largest business organisations in the Harrogate area, representing businesses in all sectors and of all sizes. From one-man start-up businesses to large, established companies, Harrogate District Chamber offers networking, relevant information and representation to benefit all its members and the wider business community.

Our organisation exists to support businesses and help them to grow, further increasing employment opportunities across the Harrogate District. Each of our monthly meetings begins with open networking and has opportunities for businesses to promote their offers and events to fellow members.

Established in 1896, Harrogate Chamber has a long history of supporting local businesses and lobbying on their behalf. From persuading government ministers to support improvements to local rail connections, to welcoming regional business and tourism leaders as speakers at our meetings, we have a track record of success.

The Harrogate District


In 2016, our organisation changed from Harrogate Chamber of Trade and Commerce to become Harrogate District Chamber of Commerce.

This development reflects the changing nature of business in the Harrogate district, as local enterprise partnerships, devolution and other political changes are introduced.

Businesses are strongest when they are united in a common purpose. We will continue to work closely with all the business organisations in the Harrogate district and hope that our joint efforts can be the greatest force for positive development that our area has ever known.

Testimonial
Alison Hartwell (MD)
of Harrogate Holidays

"The beauty of joining Harrogate Chamber for me as a small business owner was the ability to tap into the wealth of knowledge of others and to share experiences related to Harrogate and district. Networking can either be informal before meetings or structured at the Networking Safaris. Everyone was initially so friendly that I just wanted to get involved."
