    Further information

We offer an extensive range of tours at Harewood for Secondary learners which extend to all areas of the site, including the House, Grounds and Gardens. All our sessions are led by our expert and friendly staff, we can also work with teachers to develop bespoke collaborative projects.

Harewood provides a rich context for high level study across both the sciences and humanities. We are an accredited museum with a ‘lived’ social history, world-class architecture, art and furniture collection. 


“Everything was beautifully linked to our topic… superb guide and resources- even before our visit.”

Teacher, Knaresborough St John’s, Knaresborough

Harewood House is an accredited museum but also a home which reveals a social, lived history through primary sources and artefacts. Harewood can be used as a context for exploring ideas and opinions, from the legacy of the British Empire and the Trade in enslaved African people, to the experience of being ‘in service’. 

Arts and Design

At Harewood, pupils can explore masterpieces by Joshua Reynolds, JMW Turner and Titian, the finest furniture by Thomas Chippendale, and world-famous ceilings by Robert Adam. Our new exhibition, Reframing Reynolds coming on the 18th March 2023, will offer new insights into this master painter and the opportunity for pupils to explore how a temporary exhibition is organised and installed. 

We also offer self-guided visits, for more information head to our Self-Guided Visits page. For further information or assistance with planning your visit you can contact our Learning Team on learn@harewood.org or you can complete our online booking form.
