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

This estate is by far the most beautiful stately home that is accessible to the public. The house itself has by far the most elaborate decoration of any, due to the John Adam fireplaces, ceilings[which look as if they were painted yesterday], and carpets. Most of the furniture and fittings are Chippendale. The grounds are extensive and beautifully kept. There... More

Harewood House is a magnificent Palace set in wonderful grounds with lots to do. The house itself has one of the largest collections of Chippendale furniture anywhere in the UK, the first floor of the house is open to the public to look around, various rooms with the grand ball room at the end of one of the wings, there...

Excellent family day out, nearly put off by negative comments but would thoroughly recommend. We bought the ticket for house and grounds. We looked round the state rooms first. My two daughters spoke to the room stewards who were very knowledgeable. Don't miss the below stairs exhibit. You get to dress up and see an old kitchen. We then explored... More

Previously a cardholder for 4yrs here, we gave up our pass a couple of years ago with the fiasco over closing for 4months for the Tour de France. Since then we've paid for Stockeld cards, which have given the kids a great change (although at twice the cost). Came back with friends for the VW fest. Enjoyed it but have... More

The gardens surrounding the house are very well kept and you could easily spend the full day exploring these if that interests you. The £30 family ticket we bought got us into the grounds, the bird garden and the 'below stairs' rooms. With the age of our children we didn't bother with the £10 ticket upgrade to go into the...

We had afternoon tea which was delicious (slightly spoilt by the wasps),. The house and grounds are definitely worth visiting if you are in the area. The staff especially at the estate managers office were really friendly and helpful.

We visited Harewood House for the day on my birthday. The grounds are immaculately kept which is a credit to the team of people who work there. The guides inside the house could not have been nicer and talked with us about the history of the house and the family. Some of the furniture in there is also part of... More

This was our first visit to Harewood House and unfortunately we won't be visiting again in a hurry. The house itself is beautiful but don't try to have a laugh with the room guides,they don't seem to possess a sense of humour. The service in the café was pretty dire, it took the waitress a good 15 minutes to come... More

We spent a lovely afternoon at Harewood House and left thinking that you only ever visit one stately home this should be it! The interior has some great works of art by Turner and Reynolds, furniture by Chippendale and interiors by Adam. The kitchens are vast and dwarf those in some other historic houses. Outside the gardens were landscaped by... More
