Your Christmas experience doesn’t stop there – there’s lots more fun to be had! Explore the magical, mischievous installations in the main House, both on the State Floor and Below Stairs, and discover how the House and its contents come alive after dark. If you have booked an expereince for after 4pm, make sure you allow time to visit the House and Grounds before you visit Father Christmas.

There’s also a special treasure hunt around the House, and a programme of festive family activity throughout the whole of Harewood.
