There are over 100 acres of Gardens at Harewood. They are full of variety, with plants from all over the world - all this in the setting of a magnificent landscape created by Lancelot â€˜Capabilityâ€™ Brown.
Harewoodâ€™s Head Gardener, Trevor Nicholson, was named â€˜Professional Gardener of the Yearâ€™ by Horticulture Week in 2008. Now in his nineteenth year at Harewood, Trevor aims â€œto put Harewood at the top of the list as a place for garden-lovers to visit.â€ He oversees work on all the dazzling range of gardens at Harewood, including the Terrace, the Lakeside Garden, the Himalayan Garden and the Walled Garden.
Children will enjoy the excitement and thrills of the Adventure Playground, with its slides, swings and climbing frames â€“ all with the cafÃ©, picnic areas, ice cream kiosk and toilets close by.
You can also enjoy Harewoodâ€™s renowned Bird Garden, home to exotic species including penguins, owls, flamingos and parrots. Why not adopt a bird and help support the Bird Gardenâ€™s crucial conservation work?
