‘We had a wonderful day that far exceeded our expectations.  The workshop was excellent – the children were engaged throughout and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.  Harewood is a wonderful resource and the children are truly amazed by the size and wonder of it all!’

Teacher, St Paul’s Primary School, Leeds

All learning sessions at Harewood include tours and workshops led by our expert and friendly staff. Admission includes full access to the whole site, including the House, Grounds, Gardens and the Adventure Playground so you can explore all day!*

Early Years

For EYFS, we place an emphasis on Understanding the World (ELG: The Natural World) and Expressive Arts and Design (ELG: Creating with Materials).


Our History workshops are grounded in the historical site of Harewood. Sessions are designed around National Curriculum objectives and include behind-the-scenes tours and hands-on workshops with primary sources.

We are offering two new KS1 sessions which focus on comparing past and present and explore Harewood as a place of local significance.

We have two popular KS2 sessions which explore and challenge the history of Harewood in accessible and engaging ways.

Our Science workshops offer the opportunity to explore living things and biodiversity at our beautiful site. 

We have well-established KS1 learning sessions and a brand-new session all about our farm animals. 

Our Art & Design workshops explore the amazing collection of historic and contemporary art and sculpture and are led by professional artist Beatrice Knowles.

All learning sessions can be adapted to meet your pupil’s learning needs. We also offer self-guided visits, for more information head to our Self-Guided Visits page.
