As you may know, Harewood House has been used as a major set for ITV’s flagship period drama “Victoria”. Throughout the first series, the production saw Harewood transformed into Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace. The programme was viewed by over 7 million people here in Britain and has also been broadcast in over 100 countries worldwide. Series two is currently being filmed across Yorkshire and on the 7th and 13th June, Harewood will once again become Buckingham Palace. This will cause some changes to visitor access to the House and grounds.
To allow the film crew to transform Harewood House into Buckingham Palace, we will close Below Stairs, the Terrace Gallery and Terrace Cafe on the 7th June. The Terrace will also be used so access to this garden, along with all areas of Below Stairs, will not be possible.
To ensure that you can enjoy all of the House, we will be opening the State Floor to all visitors on the 7th June at no additional cost. This will allow you to see the magnificent rooms and the Victorian Harewood exhibitions.
On the 13th June, the film crew are using the Church located within Harewood’s grounds. During this time, there will be no access to All Saints Church.
Filming generates vital income for Harewood and it makes a significant difference to the charity. We would like to thank all our visitors in advance for their patience and we hope that you enjoy seeing the House being used by a large film production like “Victoria”.
