My husband and I are thinking of relocating from London to Harrogate.
We just got married and are looking to settle down and start a family.
London is out of our price range when it comes to buying a house. And we live the lifestyle that Yorkshire has to offer.
We have been to Harrogate several times over the last two years and love the vibe of the place.
I would need to commute to Leeds for my job. I'm an architect. But cannot drive. So would need to use the train or bus. How bad is the commute?
My husband is more flexible but would probably be driving to quite a lot of locations outside of Harrogate for his job. Including Lead a. I hear the traffic can be bad?
Another question I have is about the best places in Harrogate to buy a property. We have 200,000£ and would like a two bed with a small garden. Catchment area for schools will soon become important.
Also what is the maternity ward like in Harrogate? And is there a good sense of community.

You'd probably want to get the train if commuting. Monthly season tickets are £156. And driving to Leeds in rush hour would be a pain. I don't know that much about different areas of Harrogate. I think in general it's quite nice. Might be some areas to avoid but I'd guess they'd be pretty obvious.
