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

The building looks impressive and the grounds and nice, but found it very expensive as you have to pay into each part wether it be the house, birds garden, would not go again simply because of the cost

This place is beautiful, plenty to see and do. The house itself takes about a hour to walk round plenty staff to help with information. The rooms elegantly presented. The church is worth a visit to which is at the entrance to this estate. There is a little bus that goes round if you dont want to walk or need... More

Plenty of outdoor space for picnics and a large car park Entrance prices include the full visit, including state rooms, or a less costly ticket for the gardens and "downstairs", which was very interesting. The downstairs rooms and kitchens are set out as they would have been and knowledgeable local volunteer guides have all sorts of interesting tales to tell... More

Have visited Harewood House several times and loved it as a child. Our son enjoyed the adventure playground. Not very many birds to see and only five penguins. The house is beautiful and there were some nice walks but gardens not up to the standard of other similar places apart from the garden on the terrace that is lovely. Took... More

It is easily accessible by public transport (you even get a discount if you come here by bus), but it’s quite a stroll to reach the manor. The grounds are wonderful, and peaceful if you get here early (once families with children arrive, the tranquility is gone) and the lower floor of the manor is open to the public (make... More

Visited a on a coolish Sunday in July. Under 4's were free. Adults were £11.50 ish with gift aid and that only got you into the servants quarters of the main house, which I didn't think we're brought to life, as they can be in other places. The playground was ok for a 2 year old, but didn't hold her... More

Took my granddaughter (age 18 months). She loved the penguins & flamingos but some of the enclosures appeared 'empty' (maybe some species just hard to spot), not a great problem as we talked about the trees etc. The ducks are plentiful & she was happy to 'quack' at them up close! The play area is lovely but more suited to... More

We went to Harewood house for my Wife's birthday as we have not been there for quite a few years and were disappointed with certain aspects of the visit. The exotic birds were few and far between (only one of each in most cases), we remember their being many more birds than now. The gardens and grounds were very good... More

One of England's grandest houses, Harewood lives up to all expectations. The medieval church off the drive to the house is well worth a visit, with its array of 15th and 16thC alabaster tombs. The house is by Robert Adam at his finest, with alterations to the garden front with its terrace, and a few rooms by Charles Barry. The... More

Visited Harewood House today with my Grandaughter and 2 friends who have not been back to Harewood for a long time, they were very dissapointed with the bird garden which they said were a lot better years ago. It was looking rundown! The playground was good and the staff were very friendly.
