Harewood House, Leeds Reviews

  • Harewood House set in very grand privately owned rolling parklands open to the public just north of Leeds on the A61, is a good place for a family day out. Last weekend the grounds provided a very good setting indeed for this year's Northern Cross Country Championships. But be careful when actually touring the house, the staff were not historically particularly child friendly. Nevertheless a recommended venue to visit.

  • Harewood house is a beautiful stately home. Gardens and estate are beautifully manicured. A day ticket is relatively expensive in my view but on a nice day it is a wonderful part of the world to be in. The estate is not part of national trust or English heritage and so tickets are limited only to the estate. Harewood house estate is home to lots of pne off or annual events (classic car show, food events, open air theatre productions, Christmas productions etc). It's a great place to bring kids to visit the outdoors. The bird garden has had a small farm experience added around 2016 which is small but nice. The lake has boat tours on for an extra fee. The woods and ornamental gardens are beautiful and the kids play grounds are fun with big slides and climbing frames and zip wires. On rainy days the kitchen under the stairs is fun. For adults theres plenty of history and a great bookshop. The high prices mean that it never seems to crowded and make it a lovely oasis only a few miles out of Leeds city centre.

  • Great place for a day out. Lovely wildlife and bird area. Good play area for kids of all ages. Beautiful grounds and plenty of parking. Nice eating areas.

  • We go here slot as we our members. It has a great kids playground which caters for all ages. There is the bird sanctuary and nice food. It can get pretty busy e.g. this Xmas it was packed and they ran out of a lot of food. The house itself is interesting to wander around and my daughter who is 4 enjoyed the Xmas decorations. There are some nice walks including some which you don't need to pay to do.

  • Venue for Northern Counties Cross Country 2018, well organised and planned event. Good access on day for us from North. Good parking and great Venue - more athletics meetings to come here I think. Tough uphill start though!
