The 2020 National Road Safety Conference will take place at The Majestic Hotel in Harrogate.

2020 will be the second time National Conference has been held in Harrogate, with the 2013 event also staged at the same venue.

The Majestic has recently benefited from a multi-million pound refurbishment, completed just before the end of 2019, and is now formally known as the DoubleTree by Hilton Harrogate.

The hotel is one of Harrogate’s landmark buildings, sitting in landscaped gardens overlooking the beautiful North Yorkshire spa town.

It is within walking distance of shopping, dining and historical attractions and a comfortable 10-minute walk from the bus and train stations. There is plentiful onsite car parking.

For the National Conference, Road Safety GB has secured total occupancy of The Majestic’s 184 bedrooms, with overflow rooms in an adjacent hotel.
