We welcome Girlguiding groups from across the region to explore Harewood’s past and present connections with the Girlguiding Association.
Princess Mary, grandmother to the current Earl of Harewood, had a strong interest and involvement with the Girlguides from an early age. She became Norfolk’s County Commissioner in 1917, aged just 20 years old. After three years of devoted work, she was made president of the organisation, a role she enjoyed throughout her life.
This year, in partnership with Girlguiding Leeds, we are excited to launch a brand new Harewood Challenge badge which groups can complete during their visit to Harewood.
The Harewood Badge will be awarded to all visiting young members on completion of the challenges included within the Harewood Challenge pack, which can be found on the right of this page.
To book a visit to Harewood House, or have a chat about anything within the Harewood Challenge pack, please call our Education Manager, Zoë White, on 0113 218 1043 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. All visit must be booked in advance.
We offer a special discounted rate for all Girlguiding groups:
– £6.00 per young member (this includes a Harewood challenge badge for each young member)
– 1 adult free of charge per 10 girls (under 16)
– £6.50 per additional adult
– Essential carers free of charge
The activities within the Harewood Challenge pack are divided across the different areas of Harewood, from the House, Bird Garden, Gardens and Farm. Each young member will be required to complete a set number of challenges from each activity section to achieve their Harewood Challenge Badge. Harewood badges are included within the price of entry, and can be collected from the Information Centre on the day of your visit.
