Harewood House – Out And About

Having explored the stunning mansion that is Harewood House, we quickly grabbed some (delicious) lunch in their cafe then headed outside to explore the very extensive grounds. There are acres of gorgeous gardens set in a Capability Brown landscape – a lot to see.

Son perked up again after food and water and was most interested in the wildlife that calls Harewood home. We went back to have another look at the penguins and also found some flamingos and parrots.

Some creatures of the non feathered variety live here too…

My favourite was the Himalayan Garden with its wonderful plants and landscaping. Son was intrigued by the Harewood Stupa, a Buddhist monument built by monks from Bhutan and apparently the only one of its kind in the UK.
