Harewood House To Display Costumes From Victoria %7C Group Travel News

To celebrate the success of ITV’s highest rated drama of 2016, costumes from Victoria will go on display at Harewood House in 2017, in the areas where parts of the programme were filmed.

Harewood was a key location during the filming of Victoria, in which the production crew filmed across Yorkshire for several months during winter 2015/16.

Mammoth Screen – the production company – used Harewood House’s State Floor and Below Stairs, as well as other parts of the estate.

In celebration of the show’s success, outfits worn by Jenna Coleman, who plays Queen Victoria, will be on display throughout the 2017 season.

Alexis Guntrip, marketing manager at Harewood House, commented, “We are delighted to be exhibiting costumes from Victoria in 2017. We worked very closely with the production company throughout the filming period; this is the icing on the cake! The programme has created a lot of interest from visitors to Harewood already. The costume exhibition will provide a wonderful opportunity for period drama fans to become part of the story.”

Alongside the costumes, visitors will also be able to discover more about the age through the eyes of three influential women – Lady Louisa the 3rd Countess of Harewood, Lady Charlotte Canning and Queen Victoria herself.

Personal objects owned by Queen Victoria and her Lady in Waiting, Charlotte, will be on display, and groups will have the chance to learn about how Lady Louisa altered the very fabric of Harewood House.
