Description: From the moment you arrive, Harewood captures your imagination and feeds...
From the moment you arrive, Harewood captures your imagination and feeds your curiosity. It's a place filled with art, culture and heritage which continues to develop and thrive today. One of the Treasure Houses of England, the historic Georgian property sits within "Capability" Brown designed landscape with remarkable views from the award winning Terraces. Come inside and you'll be blown away by rare Chippendale furniture and jaw-dropping interior designs in the State Rooms. Make sure you leave time to explore the well-trodden corridors of Below Stairs. A place where young kitchen hands can get hands on with history, dress up and discover life a servant or you can enjoy a changing programme of contemporary art exhibitions in the Terrace Gallery. With bags of space to run around, a massive adventure playground, penguins, flamingos and parrots there's no shortage of adventure for kids of all ages

Managed to join as a member, do House & Gardens & both cafés & food festival & I could have stayed longer. Prepared sandwiches at Terrace cafe nice with a good red wine with breathtaking views. Himalayan gardens were beautiful. Can't wait to see the Archery Border later in the Summer & looking forward to seeing Harewood in other seasons.

Now that I have your attention grabbed by my super intelligent piggy title about pigs that look like you, you'll be amazed, purely amazed, by the attention-clasping grounds of Harewood House, with a house that looks like your dreams. A beautiful guided tour leads you through the brilliant grounds with plenty of knowledge and information. PS YOU LOOK LIKE A... More

We visited Harewood on a weekday because I really aren't one for crowds and after reading reviews before we came I didn't have the highest expectations because there seems to be quite a mix. I am not normally a review writing type but I had to write one after seeing possibly the hardest working group of people I have ever... More

I went to Harewood House with a friend and her small grand daughter. We got the Freedom Pass so we could see all the attractions and it cost £15.75 each. Although it was nice to see the house upstairs and down I felt it was a bit overpriced as it didn't take us long to walk round. We went to... More

There are over 20 rooms which have been fully renovated and which are open to the public including two dedicated exhibition spaces.

My family visited one very chilly, Spring Saturday. The gardens were lovely to wander around, especially the Himalayan garden, as all the flowers were in bloom. The adventure playground is great for children. We didn't venture into the house as we were limited for time. The only downside was the bird garden, it used to be a focal point but... More

Had a very nice day at Harewood House when visiting as a family. Enjoyed walking through the grounds and learning about the history of the house. Best bit has to be the aviary with the Kites swooping in low to take food off the handlers. Very exciting to see them that close. Catering not the best but ok if you... More

This is a review of the grounds and gardens- we didn't pay extra to see the house. The grass is very well looked after and the paths between the gardens are nice too. The gardens themselves were disappointing - they had an air of being neglected about them ( big gaps in the planting and some trees / shrubs that... More

HI holgate79 Thanks for getting in touch. Feedback is very important to us. I've spoken with the Head Gardener about your review. He's noted that on the Terrace, we're just putting out tender summer plants so you may have been slightly ahead of them when you visited. Along the Lakeside new rhododendrons have just been planted and still need time... More

We got a bus from Leeds and the bus ticket got us into Harewood for half price!! When we arrived we were met by a little train thingy that took you to the main part of Harewood which was so good. Spent a good day out looking round the house, which can I say, the volunteers who are on hand... More

Beautiful grounds and gardens what lets it down is the catering and the hit and miss with the staff attitudes. The Turner and Girtin Gallery and Below the stairs excellent with polite and well educated staff. However the women in the Art of Conservation room was dam right rude and made you feel you should not be disturbing her space.... More

Hi north021, Thanks for your comments and it's disappointing to hear that part of your experience was negative. The people who are in the rooms of the House at Harewood are all volunteers, giving their time free of charge to support the charitable trust.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Harewood! The architecture was amazing, the state rooms were stunning and the understairs areas were educational. There was a world class display of Chippendale furniture. It was like being on the set of Downton Abbey. We enjoyed an afternoon tea in the terrace cafe. The gardens were very interesting with many unusual plants and... More
