Christmas is always such a magical time at Harewood and 2020’s festive season will still be just that. Whilst we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone Lord Whitney’s Upon a Christmas Wish to next year, a Christmas at Harewood curated by our own in-house team will take its place as the charity looks to re-opening the House on 3 December. With a beautifully decorated House for all our Members and visitors to explore, we sincerely hope we can kickstart the festive season and look forward to the future. We also hope to be able to re-arrange our festive shopping weekends following lockdown.Timed Tickets
