Harewood’s history is still evolving – always changing, always striving to stay relevant to the present day. It must be alive, cared for by the people who inhabit it and enjoyed by the people who visit it. Harewood is a living history, one with many stories still to tell.
David Lascelles, Earl of Harewood
Harewood sits in the heart of Yorkshire and is one of the Treasure Houses of England. The House was built in the 18th century and has art collections to rival the finest in Britain.
Visitors can enjoy exhibitions of contemporary art, Farm Experience and over 100 acres of exquisite gardens to explore.
