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 be broadcast in over 100 countries worldwide.
Series two is currently being filmed across Yorkshire and between the 6th – 8th April, Harewood will once again become Buckingham Palace. This will cause some changes to visitor access to the house.
To allow the film crew to transform Below Stairs of Harewood House into the kitchens and corridors of Buckingham Palace, we will close Below Stairs during the 6th, 7th and 8th April. Access to the Terrace Gallery, Terrace Café and Gavin Fernandes’ exhibition, The Empire Line, will still be possible.
To ensure that you can enjoy all of the house, we will be opening the State Floor to all visitors on the 6th, 7th and 8th April at no additional cost. This will allow you to see the magnificent rooms and the Victorian Harewood exhibitions. There will be some disruption to rooms on the State Floor as the Main Library is prepared for filming. Please talk to the team and refer to visitor information when you visit.
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”.
