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

Beautiful Grand Estate. Cant understand why the current owners would wish to create a drab and dingy grey room which seems so out of character in the main quarters. The Bookshop was wonderful to visit but felt a little sad for the penguins and their enclosure which looked as though it could do with an upgrade and a good clean... More

We have the membership as it you're local it works out way cheaper. It is pretty expensive for the day though. We love the bird garden and the ground, you can do as little or big walk as you want. We seem to discover a new way every time we go there. The playground is great for the kids and... More

Beautiful house and grounds. The house itself is a huge jewel box full of treasures, still lived in and enjoyed by the Lascelles family. Consequently today's treasures are added to the collections which makes it more alive than a museum. The gardens are lovely too with many different attractions.

Excellent bird garden, exciting play park, formal gardens and a grand hose to look around. The extensive land is popular with both locals and tourists for dog walks etc. Lots of organised events attract big crowds. Beware the traffic on event days!! There is a tea room and restaurant as well as gift shops.

Because Harewood is still in the hands of the Lascelles family, it's that little bit different from most other stately homes. There is less of a corporate National Trust feel. Driving to the car park, you pass the long and magnificent facade of the grand mansion. Inside, the Robert Adam interiors and art collections are wonderful. The Below Stairs part... More

We've been bringing our children to Harewood since they were very small and they still love coming. Some of our most treasured memories and photographs were taken on the path round the lake. The adventure playground is huge and good for children of all ages. The penguins are the highlight of the Bird Garden, if a bit smelly. Theres always... More

This is a 'must see' when visiting either Leeds or Harrogate. We never fail to recommend it to our visitors who always enjoy it. It is worth paying for the house and the gardens because the house itself is very interesting and the grounds are vast and beautiful. The bird garden is always popular with our friends and especially the... More
