Harewood House

A living history, with many more stories to tell



Sitting in the true heart of Yorkshire, Harewood House is one of the fine Treasure Houses of England. Built in the 18th century, with art collections to rival the finest in the land, this grand estate is the epicentre of Yorkshire’s most beautiful landscape.

Harewood is just as much about today as it is about history. There are exhibitions of contemporary art, an award-winning educational department, renowned Bird Garden and over 100 acres of exquisite gardens. You can expect the unexpected at Harewood, with special events and themed weekends throughout the season to surprise you.

The Harewood Estate manages the countryside surrounding Harewood House, and has a nationally recognised conservation programme. This means the grounds are filled with well-protected wildlife, perfect for individuals, couples and families of all ages to explore and learn something new about the breathtaking environments Yorkshire is all too keen to offer.

Whether you want to visit the House and its wonderful collections, relax in the Gardens or play on the Playground, Harewood has a surprise round every corner that will no doubt fit even the most eccentric tastes. We think you‘ll be delighted!
