Brown plaque № 12444 in Harrogate

Victoria Gardens occupies the site of Harrogate's first covered public market, built in 1874 to the design of Arthur Hiscoe. On 31 January 1937, this building was destroyed by fire and was replaced in 1939 by a new market hall designed by Leonard Clarke. The present building, funded by the National Provident Institution and developed in partnership with Harrogate Borough Council and Speyhawk Retail plc (Architects: Cullearn & Phillips of Manchester) opened to the public on 9 November 1992. Inspited by Palladio's Basilica at Vicenza, Victoria Gardens continues Harrogate's tradition of quality shopping whilst retaining the market. As part of the development, Station Square was remodelled and Queen Victoria's monument, built to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of 1887, was cleaned and illuminated by the Borough Council.
