Saturday 13 November 2021 – Monday 3 January 2022
10am – 6pm

Delve into a voyage of the imagination this festive season, as Harewood recounts a Christmas tale and the House reveals its magic to all those in need of whimsical wonder… 

Christmas is back and Harewood House has much missed the company of visitors from far and wide. Created by connoisseurs of make-believe Lord Whitney, the House shares its favourite memory of when a little girl was granted a festive wish to experience a Christmas like no other. Never predictable or ordinary, join us in escaping into an immersive Christmas story from Saturday 13 November to Monday 3 January.

What's on

As part of Harewood’s festive season:

Christmas Shopping

Give the gift of a Harewood Christmas with our luxury range of unique gift and collectables. From exclusively designed cards and handmade decorations to limited edition keepsakes, gourmet hampers and a choice of unique experiences, you’ll find the gifts to place under the tree.

Visit our Christmas Shops in the Courtyard and House.

You can also join us for Festive Gift Fairs on selected weekends.

Festive Food & Drink

Visit the Courtyard Café for a range of hot and cold options, inspired by the season, available at the Courtyard Cafe. Expect hearty stews, soups, broths and pies made using produce sourced from Harewood; as well as seasonal sandwiches, alongside favourites like Northern Monk Beer Battered North Sea Haddock served with twice cooked skin on chips, minted mushy peas and home-made tartar sauce, perfect for getting you in the Christmas spirit.

There will be a range of seasonal sweets, pastries, cakes and tray bakes available from our local artisan suppliers, as well as a festive drinks list with rum & hot chocolate, mulled wine and more.

Visit the Terrace Tearoom for hot drinks and Christmas Afternoon teas, and our Bothy Teashop will be open serving a range of hot and cold snacks, drinks and walled garden produce.
