6 Reasons to Get a Family Membership This Festive Season

‘Tis the season for amazing days out! Here are just a few reasons why your family will love a Harewood membership…

1. Our gift to you – brilliant value

Membership is worth it within 3 visits to Harewood – and with such a lovely festive atmosphere, we bet you’ll have come back 3 times by the New Year!

Christmas day tickets are a little more than usual as they include Upon a Christmas Wish, our wonderful festive experience in the House – so it’s actually closer to 2 visits to make Membership pay for itself at this time of year.

2. Come back again and again

This year we’ve launched exclusive Grounds-only tickets for Members – they’re still free, and mean you can come back to enjoy the Gardens, Grounds, Festive Gift Fairs and Magical Christmas Nights whenever you like, rather than needing to book a slot for the House.

3. The best way to burn off energy

We all love how excited kids get about Christmas… but sometimes you need to burn off that excess energy! There’s no better way than in our beloved Adventure Playground, and in this year’s brand new willow playspace, the Woodland Wonderland, which will be lit up in the evenings for magical adventures.

As well as our play areas, a walk around the lake to the Walled Garden is an accessible, family-friendly stroll – with hot chocolates and marshmallow toasting at the end from the Bothy Teahouse. With over 100 acres to explore, you’ll find something new every time you visit with your Membership.

4. Winter weekends to perk up after the holidays

Don’t worry about feeling glum after Christmas – with a Family Membership, you can look forward to weekend adventures at Harewood from January to March before we fully open again for the season. There’s nothing like a run across the North Lawn and a hop across the Himalayan Garden stepping stones to blow away the cobwebs!

5. Make 2022 full of fun

Spring and summer will soon be back and with a Family Membership, you’ve got the weekends and holidays sorted. We’re planning a season packed full of activities and events, and as Members, you’ll hear about it first, get free entry for selected events, and priority booking for everything else. Buy a Family Membership now, and pat yourself on the back in August when there’s never been a dull day!

6. Feel that warm glow of charitable giving

Your Membership is a vital contribution to Harewood House Trust, the charity that runs Harewood House and Grounds. Without the generosity and loyalty of our Members, Harewood couldn’t stay open for your children to enjoy with their own families when they grow up. So choose to buy a Family Membership today, and know how grateful we are for your contribution. Thank you.

Family Memberships are £95 (£120 non-Direct Debit), for up to two adults and up to  five children under 18 living at the same address, under 4s free.
