Description:

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

I walked the entire grounds around Harewood House with my friend and our dogs. We enjoyed wonderful views across the estate. The deers wander freely and the woods are accessible too. This was 7 miles in total, no challenging hills and a glorious view.

Unfortunately the house was closed when we visited, but we still enjoyed visiting its grounds. We walked around the house and enjoyed watching a hunt commence with people on horse back accompanied by hounds! Would definitely recommend.

We've been here many times before but for my birthday this year my partner booked me in to feed the penguins. What a surprise. It was so much fun going in the enclosure and feeding them by hand. I've never been that close to one before. Great experience. I will never forget it.

Was going to bypass this place until we found out about the amount of Chippendale furniture. Only as we were driving in did you sense this was another Capability Brown classic. The house didn't disappoint, the gardens are superb. Really love the work of Capability Brown. And take the time to walk down to the Lake.

Harewood House is set in beautiful parks and gardens. It's a very nice place to visit if the weather is good for outdoor activities (for me it means not rainy) and you happen to look for a family outing. The land is so vast, so it's ideal for walks and flying kites. The outdoor children play area is great for... More

Went in September on a beautiful sunny day and found the cost fro 2 people to be expensive. This is even before we explored the house and grounds.The house is ok but you don;t see much as the staff are paranoid about you showing too much interest as they fear the alarms will go off! Because many of the rooms... More

Good selection of high quality gifts (Battenburg Fairs organisor), some by craftspeople / makers! Especially nice gemstone jewellery, great candles /smells from Grace &Butler (re-ordered already), and some lovely homewares. Bargain day to see grounds/gardens, but do check if open, as this fair occurs AFTER Harewood winter closure dates.

We had a lovely afternoon at Harewood House but unfortuantely not long enough as we arrived a little late. The bird garden is fascinating (even though I am a little scared of birds) and the views spectacular. Would love to visit again to see inside the house

We found the house to be terrific, a really enjoyable experience seeing upstairs and downstairs. The kids playground is wonderful. The bird garden is OK. Overall worth a visit but it comes at a high entry cost.
