“Harewood is in Yorkshire. The park seems very fine; the view from the window is very pretty. We dined in the beautiful gallery with a party of nearly 300 in number.   

Princess Victoria recalls her visit to Harewood, 12th September 1835

Harewood House was recently used as a major set for ITV’s Victoria series. To celebrate the success of the programme, the opulent rooms on Harewood’s State Floor will come to life with costumes from the programme. Outfits worn by Jenna Coleman who plays Queen Victoria will be displayed throughout the 2017 season.

Alongside the costumes, you will be able to explore this fascinating age through the eyes of three influential women. Lady Louisa, 3rd Countess of Harewood, Lady Charlotte Canning and Queen Victoria herself. See personal objects owned by Queen Victoria and her Lady in Waiting, Charlotte, and learn about how Lady Louisa altered the very fabric of Harewood House in a grand redevelopment.
