Well worth a visit in the centre of Harrogate. The outside looks ordinary but the modern glass side entrance emphasises the modern look inside.

St. Peter's is Harrogate's Town Church. The Exterior is much like many others of its age, but the interior really is something else. Tall decorated arches flank the Nave. whilst the Chancel creates powerful elegance.

As one might expect in the relatively new town of Harrogate, St Peter’s only dates from 1876 when it was consecrated to meet the needs of the fast growing town. It is a rather splendid looking church and the view of the tall chancel arch,...More

Mildly interesting historic church in the town centre. We didn't stay long as the ambience was being totally destroyed by a guy using a very noisy hoover.

It was only built about 150 years ago. In the Norman style, with square tower added a few years later. Beautiful church, lovely interior with stained glass windows.
