After a successful run in 2022, Harewood is bringing back this special opportunity to visit the private apartments of Harewood House, previously closed off to the public.
Join us for this one hour tour around the Private Apartments and see where artists, presidents, kings and queen have been hosted for over 250 years. Our amazing tour guides will take you around the suites that are still in use today by the 8th Earl and Countess, filled with beautiful art and objects that reflect the family’s diverse tastes.
From Turner and Girtin to 20th and 21st Century artists or from time as a hospital in Second World War to the amazing adaptations made for modern life; the wonders of Private Apartments are sure to delight curious minds and please everyone from art lovers to history buffs.
The tour will also incorporate some of the best views in the House, looking down over the Terrace and wider ‘Capability’ Brown landscape.
