The Old Swan Hotel, your perfect Christmas and New Year venue.
The Old Swan is the perfect atmosphere for a traditional Christmas or New Year celebration in Harrogate. The Halls are decked, trees sparkling, roaring log fire, excellent food and relaxing accommodation await you.
There’s no better place to share Christmas and New Years celebrations than with friends, family or colleagues at the Old Swan Hotel. Our Victorian splendour hotel hosts festive events throughout December and retains an elegant charm with traditional decorations adorning the hotel, wreaths swathed on the fireplace and exquisitely decorated trees dotted throughout the hotel.
Christmas and New Year is such a popular time of year here at the Old Swan that bookings are often taken well in advance (sometimes the morning after), so we suggest that you book early to avoid disappointment.
We look forward to seeing you at the Old Swan for Christmas or New Year in Harrogate.
Christmas Party Nights
Let The Festive Fun Begin!
Our Classic Christmas Party Nights are always popular – good food, great hospitality, traditionally decorated tables with crackers and novelties and a lively and fun evening with our resident DJ providing the soundtrack.
If you are looking for a more unique party evening why not try one of our themed nights? This year we have five great themed events.
For something completely different you could always try one of our two Murder Mystery Nights.

Treat the ones you love this Christmas
In an age where most of us have probably bought the latest designer clothes, the must have tech and kitchen gadgets for the perfect coffee, it seems to be getting harder and harder each year to find the perfect gift for your friends and family.
So why not give them the Classic gift of time with loved ones and a shared experience through buying them a gift voucher that can be used at 12 different hotels from the Northumberland Coastline to the fells of Cumbria, the North Yorkshire Dales and Moors to The Cotswolds or further down into Buckinghamshire and West Sussex.
