ENGLAND - HAREWOOD HOUSE
Harewood House nestles in Capability Brown landscaped surrounds and is home to the Queen's cousin, the Earl of Harewood.
Harewood is renowned for its formal gardens, oriental style Rock Garden and 18th century Walled Garden, where you can view multicultural and historical crops, or in season, walk to the centre of the Spiral Meadow. It is Yorkshire's most visited historic house and in 2002 broke its visitor record with some 325,000 visitors travelling to view the House, which is one of the Great Treasure Houses of Britain.
