  • Harewood House in LS17 is a well presented day out for all the family. However you do pay for the pleasure. The grounds have a Cafe, Farm Experience, Himalayan Garden, Stepping Stones, Penguins, Birds and Adventure Playground plus the house which we did not explore. The Adventure Playground was v good. Appropriate for all ages, big and spacious. It had steps on and off at different intervals which means children can get on and off without a problem. The cafe food was £5 a sandwich and would recommend taking a picnic as there are sheltered benches near to the car park. There is a boat trip on the lake which costs extra.
  • I have not been in the house its self but the grounds and park are beautiful with loads of different paths and routes to explore. Well behaved dogs can be off lead a lot of the time apart from round the livestock and in the deer park. The amount of dear in the park is incredible! Thoroughly enjoyed our walk here and have even managed to wear our spaniel out!!
  • The house and grounds are beautiful and the volunteers and staff were really nice and knowledgeable. There is a lot of walking to do, so be ready for that. If you take the bus, you get half off admission which is cool. If you're not driving, I suggest getting there early as the cue to get a ticket is a long car line which would be really tiring to stand in. I arrived around 11:30am and didn't have to wait long but by 2ish when I left, there were at least 20 cars in line. Maybe it would be good if there was a pedestrian-priority ticket window? Safer than having people standing between cars.
  • A really nice afternoon out. The only downside is the prices. The price of entry is somewhat high, and if you're driving in, you need to pay before you can park, so unless you live locally, you can't even enjoy the lawn without forking over a fair bit of cash per person first. The cost of lunch in the cafe was somewhat steep also, for the rather limited selection of sandwiches and salads on offer. None of this was unexpected, but if you're visiting, bring some cash!
  • Lovely day out. Great outdoor play area for children. Bird garden and small animal area good for children. Some maintenance work being carried out at moment restricting access to some parts of garden.
