Hello! magazine at Harewood

This week’s issue of Hello! magazine (18th – 25th April) sees Harewood as the back-drop to an interview with Coronation Street star Katherine Kelly.

If you visited Harewood one sunny Sunday a couple of weeks ago you may have seen Katherine and the Hello! crew, who visited for the photo-shoot in Harewood’s award-winning Gardens and Grounds.

Photos were taken in Harewood’s lakeside gardens where the cherry blossom was in full bloom, on the Terrace with Harewood’s breathtaking 18th Century facade and fountains in the background and also in the West Garden where thousands of bulbs and spring blooms grow beneath the canopies of the trees above.

Katherine herself remembers visiting Harewood as a child so it was a fitting place for an interview which coincides with the announcement that Katherine will be leaving Coronation Street this year… we’ll have to wait and see how the storyline pans out on the soap, but it’s guaranteed to be a finale to remember!

The full interview with Katherine Kelly is in Hello! magazine, out now.

Bigger and Better than ever!

This year’s Autumn Glory was better than ever and we had record numbers of visitors to prove it!

This classic Harewood event has always been popular but this year’s event was bigger and better including dry-stone walling demos, glass blowing, the West Garden transformed into an enchanted forest with giant toadstools, fairytale gateways and tipis as well as an all-new craft market with unique hand-made craft goodies on sale in our cosy (and massive!) 3-tipi tent on the North Front.

The West Garden tipis were full of delighted children taking part in seasonal fun, storytelling and activities… and the weather was perfect!

If you missed Autumn glory this year you missed a treat! Join us next October Half Term for entertainment and seasonal fun and to see the grounds and landscape showing their glorious autumn colours!

More details will be available on our website in the spring…
