Harewood House has released details of its Christmas plans for groups. 

The team at Harewood House has announced that it will host four Christmas market weekends throughout the month of November and will decorate the historic house for the season, although the indoor theme will be revealed nearer the time.

All plans are being made under the assumption that social distancing measures will still be in place towards the end of 2020, but the attraction is still hoping to be able to offer groups a very similar experience to previous years, having also been awarded the ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark from VisitEngland. 

If visiting the estate on the first Christmas market date (6th - 8th November), the house will be closed in preparation for Harewood’s themed Christmas display, but groups can make use of reduced admission.

Rooms within the house will be decorated to fit a theme that will be revealed at a later date.

Group guided tours

Harewood House recently reopened its doors to groups following its closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, and while most visits will be on a self-guided basis, socially distanced guided tours can now be pre-booked.

These tours will be running with fewer visitors per guide and with staggered tour start times to adhere to the Government’s guidelines at all times.

If the group is particularly large, tours can also be offered prior to the House opening to the general public.
