Day tickets for non-Members will need to be purchased online. To manage capacity, we are offering hourly time slots for arrival. Members do not need to pre-book except during very busy times.
Will I have to print out my tickets or can I show them on my phone?
Visitors should show their tickets on their phone, and at some places they may be asked to share their name and booking number. To maintain social distancing, we’re asking visitors to avoid passing anything to our staff.
I’m a Member – do I still need to book?
No, for most of the season Members do not need to pre-book. However during very busy times you will need to pre-book, such as Make it Harewood, the Great British Food Festival, and Christmas. We will give you plenty of notice for these times.
Do I need to reserve a ticket for my under 4 year old?
Yes, please do. You will not be charged anything extra.
How will your booking system work?
All visitors can book online – booking closes at 11.59pm the day before the visit.
How will people have to show their booking?
Visitors will be asked to show booked tickets through their vehicle window before parking, along with Member cards for Members. Those arriving on foot or bike will be checked at the same place of entry to cars and asked to keep distance.
What happens if people turn up on the day?
Visits should be pre-booked where possible. If people do turn up and we have capacity on that day, they will be given the opportunity to enter, but it is not guaranteed.
How long can I stay?
There is no time limit on how long you can stay!
What are your opening times?
Harewood is open 10am-6pm, 7 days a week. The House is open 11am-4pm.
We know how much you enjoy visiting Harewood and ask that you are patient and play your part in making this a lovely experience for all.
Will you be asking visitors to wear facemasks?
Visitors may wear face masks on site should they wish to do so.
Can I take a pushchair/stroller around the House ?
Prams and strollers not permitted in the House. Please note that as usual, prams and strollers are not allowed in the House because of the risk to our historic floors, carpets and furniture. Please leave prams and strollers in your car whilst you are visiting the House; any prams left elsewhere are left at your own risk.
