Harewood House, Leeds Reviews - Write a Review
An excellent day out. Very enjoyable and interesting with some lovely walks in the grounds and beautiful Christmas decorations in the house. The kitchen and household utensils were amazing. A very worthwhile visit.
Having not been here for a few years I wasn't sure if my son would enjoy it or not (8 year old). We paid on the gate as didn't have time to book online. Discounted ticket on line. Went round the house which is beautiful. My son did a kids challenge which he enjoyed in the house. Lovely gardens. Also enjoyed the birds, penguins and seeing the farm especially with the baby donkey! Food was nice although, I wouldn't leave it late if you want a meal as hot food stopped at 2.30pm I think. We were there 4 hours, up to closing time and didn't see everything. Lots to see and walk round. Playground to suit all ages up to 14 years. Really enjoyed it!
Harewood house is a truly stunning stately home, steeped in history. It is wonderfully well kept and there is something for everyone. We have been 3 times so far and recently became members as there are different events taking place throughout the year and being a member entitles you to free, or discounted, admission to these events. The house is stunning to look round with guides in all rooms to answer any questions. There is an amazing playground area for children. The gardens are spectacular! There are penguins, flamingo's, donkeys and many other animals to look at. There is a boat on which to take a trip round the lake (there is a small charge for this), there is the most stunning Himalayan garden and also a walled garden where all types of fruit and vegetables are grown. My only criticism is that the food served in the cafés is overpriced. I highly recommend taking your own picnic and eating it at one of the many picnic areas available.
We always enjoy visiting this impressive house. Walks around the grounds are lovely when the weather's nice. It is a bit hilly though and not very good for pushing heavy wheelchairs it buggies around. It can be an expensive visit, but it's worth it for an occasional visit.
A great place to visit and take in some history ! Fantastic gardens, with a great lake and exotic birds of all kinds that make up most of the zoo (don't agree with keeping birds in a cage but that's my personal view). The house itself is great to.waln through as well, and relive some its history. When we visited there was a special Alice in the wonderland theme with some great first and second editions laid around the house. We also enjoyed reading about some of the previous occupants, and their historical impact.
