Harewood House Trust


Harewood House was created using the historic wealth of the Lascelles family, garnered from the West Indian sugar trade of plantations, enslavement of people of colour and ownership of ships and warehouses. Today, Harewood House is an educational charity set up to share Harewood’s story, to listen, to learn, and to enrich people’s lives using our collections, surroundings, and our history as means of creating a better society today.  

We are committed to tackling how Harewood shares and confronts the past, and to question what that means for communities today. Harewood cannot change its past, but we can use it as a stark, unequivocal truth to build a fairer, equal future and we need people to work with us who share this commitment.

We now welcome over 200,000 people a year who come to visit our Bird Garden, stunning gardens and grounds as well as the House, which is an accredited museum

Conveniently located midway between Leeds and Harrogate and served by the 36 bus.
