Harewood House Review
The home of the earl of Harewood, a cousin of the Queen, Harewood House (pronounced har-wood) is a spectacular neoclassical mansion built in 1759 by John Carr of York. Highlights include Robert Adam interiors, important paintings and ceramics, and a large, ravishingly beautiful collection of Chippendale furniture (Chippendale was born in nearby Otley), notably the magnificent State Bed. The Old Kitchen and Below Stairs exhibition illustrates life from the servants' point of view. Capability Brown designed the handsome grounds, and Charles Barry created a notable Italian garden with fountains in the 1840s. Also here are a bird garden with numerous rare and endangered species, and a playground. The house is 7 miles north of Leeds; you can take Harrogate & District Bus 36.
