Harewood is delighted to welcome you to its 2022 Festive Season, featuring Long Live the Christmas Tree! – this year’s stunning transformation of the State Floor – as well as festoon-lit grounds, creative and unique Christmas shopping, late evening opening, festive afternoon tea and much more.
Long Live the Christmas Tree!
Encounter Harewood’s traditionally untraditional Christmas this coming winter, as Yorkshire’s most vibrant country house celebrates the Christmas Tree in a most unexpected way.
Artists and makers from across Yorkshire and beyond will bring a contemporary festive twist to the State Floor, creating trees (and ‘trees’) inspired by the natural world, winter rituals and Harewood itself. Long Live the Christmas Tree! will conjure the playfulness, joy and warmth of the season.
Christmas at Harewood
A great day out for the whole family, the stunning decoration of the House continues Below Stairs, with activities for children and Harewood’s beautiful Christmas Shop.
Take in beautiful winter strolls around the Gardens and Grounds, lit with thousands of twinkling lights. Seasonal snacks and drinks from our cafés and kiosks will keep you warm; for an extra special festive treat, book a Festive Afternoon Tea by the Harewood Food & Drink Project at the Terrace Tearoom.
For a perfect Christmas get-together, meet your friends at one of this year’s late evenings, every Friday and Saturday from 25 November to 23 December and take in Long Live the Christmas Tree! after dark.
