Harewood House Trust

1 save

Harrogate, United Kingdom • Recommendation • 

Junction 45 M1 has become A1 (M) at this point Harewood House is the home of the Lascelles family, top level English aristocrats with close royal connections. Aside from the house and its state rooms, Harewood boasts extensive grounds, a lake with included little chain ferry across it, a Himalayan garden and a Buddhist stupa. More unexpectedly there was a mini zoo and rather good aviary. Penguins and flamingos being somewhat unusual in Yorkshire!
