Harewood House actually provides a surprisingly low-cost family day out. The home of the Earl of Harewood is renowned for its stunning architecture and exquisite Adam interiors, containing a rich collection of Chippendale furniture, fine porcelain and outstanding art collections but did you know it also provided a first-class adventure playground, Bird Gardens, boat trips across the lake and an extensive programme of events and exhibitions.
In 2004 for the first time the servants hall, housekeepers room and corridors of 'below stairs' Harewood opened displaying over 1000 objects with fascinating tales to tell will be open to the public. The inspiring grounds enfold aparterre terrace, oriental rock garden, walled garden, lakeside and woodland walks.
