What a wonderful setting for the start of the Tour de France and what a fantastic day. This is a must visit place for anyone wishing to explore all those wonderful sights in Yorkshire that the Tour passed through.

This was our first visit to Harewood House and its grounds, and we took two of my American cousins (literally) for a visit there, after we'd been to see our 3 day old grandson in Leeds. The weather was great and to add to the occasion for the "colonialists" there was a society wedding taking part during our visit. The... More

We visited this over the weekend as part of the Tour de France celebration. The gardens are very impressive although the Himilayan Gardens need work. Food served in the facilities was freshly served, good price and the staff were very plays any and chatty. House, which I will admit is never really my thing was interesting and had lots of... More

Living in Leeds and never having been to Harewood house we decided to give it a go. My wife has mobility problems, but we have a mobility scooter which fits in the car and allows us to visit most places. Having winced at the price we made our way to the café which we expected to be dear, but found... More

What a disappoint this was. We bought a family ticket for £27, it was a special day out for Fathers Day. We arrived at 2pm, and by 3pm we could see a huge queue of show cars leaving Harewood. So really we didn't get to see a good selection of cars. We couldn't understand why there was a display of... More

First of all thank you for your feedback. The classic cars are brought along by private owners and it's requested that they remain in the arena until after 5pm by the event organisers. The Car Show is designed to be a family event therefore the event organisers try to provide something for everyone. The main arena hosted a concourse of... More

Catering arrangements appalling. Most of large group too late for house : so you had our money for nothing. We should have our entry refunded. Someone did go into the house, and found a very surly, unwelcoming gentleman at the entrance. Just not good enough for visitors. I dread to think what is going to happen when thousands turn up...

Thank you for your feedback and sincere apologies that you've had a bad experience. Regards House opening and closing times, details are printed on tickets, staff are required to reiterate last admission times at the point of sale and there is a sign outside the front of the House. The House is staffed primarily with volunteers. Without their generosity and... More

Decided to take a younger family out for the day and someone I know recommended Harewood house because of its playground I am glad they did. We went mid week and during term time so the playground was quiet and I managed to park up in the shade close to the playground. The attraction has various prices depending on what... More

We really enjoyed our visit especially the servants quarters in the basement. The staff were very knowledgeable and keen to share the knowledge once you get them started. I learnt so many interesting things from the man who was working this weekend (7th June) in the basement kitchen, it was a real eye opener. Don't bother with the cafe in... More

My husband and I visited Harewood house yesterday on the freedom pass. We were a little confused when asked if we wanted to gift aid our entrance fee of some £28 as this would have cost us another 10%. I have never had to pay more in order to gift aid?! The house and its contents were pretty amazing, and... More
