Force Gill Waterfall - 6 meter waterfall just a short detour from the 3 peaks rout between Ribblehead Viaduct and Whernside.

Ever fancied learning the secrets behind Thai Cooking? Well from 2014 the Sukhothai restaurants (based in Harrogate and Leeds) will be doing chef master classes on selected Wednesday evenings. head chef and owner Ban Kaewkraikhot will be personally teaching these classes at their Chapel Allerton Branch. During the 3 hour class you will learn to make a starter, main course and traditional Thai dessert. There will be limited numbers per class so that each student will get one on one time with the teacher and a goodie bag on departure - all for the Yorkshire price of £50.00. for more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would also say that the Sukhothai is an excellent addition to the Harrogate restaurant scene enjoyed by locals and tourists alike.
Mirabelle burst onto the Harrogate Restaurant scene with exquisite French cooking with high quality Yorkshire ingredients.
Mid week menu is 2 courses from £17.50 or 3 courses for £19.95 - Monday to Thursday 6pm-9pm
Mirabelle is also putting on specially themed culinary events for the Stages of the Tour De France
