Gardens & Grounds

There are over 100 acres of gardens at Harewood. They are full of variety, with plants from all over the world. All this in the setting of a magnificent landscape created by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

Award Winning

Harewood’s Head Gardener, Trevor Nicholson, oversees the award winning landscape. Trevor aims “to put Harewood at the top of the list as a place for garden-lovers to visit.” He manages projects on all the dazzling range of gardens at Harewood, including the Terrace, the Lakeside Garden, the Himalayan Garden and the Walled Garden. 

Family Fun

Children will enjoy the excitement and thrills of the Adventure Playground, with its slides, swings and climbing frames – all with the café, picnic areas, ice cream kiosk and toilets close by.

Wildlife

You can also enjoy Harewood’s renowned Bird Garden, run by Bird Garden Curator John Waller, home to exotic species including penguins, owls, flamingos and parrots. Why not adopt a bird and help support the Bird Garden’s crucial conservation work?
