Harewood House - Review

Situated within “capability” Brown designed landscape, this historic Georgian property offers breathtaking views from its terraces. Inside the house, you can see rare Chippendale furniture and exquisite interior designs in the State Rooms. Also, do take out time to explore the corridors Below Stairs. Constructed during 1759 – 1772, the Harewood House is the seat of the Earl and Countess of Harewood. The house today retains much of its original splendor and enchants people with its grandeur.

As you enter inside the rooms, you shall come across extensive art collections, from El Greco, JMW Turner, and Joshua Reynolds to Epstein, Sidney Nolan and Gaudier-Brzeska. Apart from the main house, you can also enjoy around its 32 acre lake and rolling hills with views from the formal Italian Terrace that are certainly not to be missed.

This marvelous county house has something for everyone, with lots of space to run around, a massive adventure playground, penguins, flamingos, the kids can think of spending a fabulous day ahead.

Harewood House, Leeds Reviews

  • Fantastic day out. So much to do. The house gives you a good opportunity to see a snapshot of an earlier time. The gardens are beautiful, with both formal and informal areas which you can roam around for hours. And finally the bird garden has a range of exotic birds in natural enclosures and a handful of small animals that young and old will enjoy looking at. Well worth the entry fee.

  • I visited Harewood House today and loved it. There is loads to do and see and having the lovely weather helped. I had booked a penguin experience for my daughter for her 18th Birthday. What an amazing experience this was and worth every penny. If you have young children there is a brilliant outdoor play area and animals to feed like goats, pigs, rabbits etc. There is a boat on the lake that offers trips for £3 each or £10 for family of four. The gardens are lovely and the food in the cafe was lovely too. All in all a fabulous day out. Would go again.

  • A fantastic visit and the volunteers are lovely. My only complaint was the cafe in the house. It all just seemed very awkward. The placement of the fridges and register were strange and one of toilets didn't lock even though they're supposed to be unisex. I don't know if it's a new addition but it definitely needs re-evaluating.

  • Always a great day out or even just for an hour. The single ticket price seems quite high but if you are staying the whole day its probably worth it. We have a family card for the year so it seems excellent value for money the playground is great for the kids of all ages and there are some lovely short walks in beautiful surroundings.

  • Something for everyone, young and old, a shuttle bus service was available for the steep bit. Went with my daughter, we were there for 5 hours, very impressed. I think we'll allow longer next time and take a picnic. There are plenty of seats and benches to rest for a while and take in the beautiful scenery.
