The picturesque ruins of an old medieval abbey are surrounded with beautiful park. We visited it in August, so it was green everywhere. River Aire is also running through this park. Amazing insights to the Cistercian monastery architecture. As I am the fan of such places, I enjoyed it very much. There is direct bus going from the city centre. We went there quite late, and the museum was closed, but we had a great time walking through the park and observing that ruins of old times.

Visited Harewood House today with my client who has memory issues. From arriving at the gate early afternoon right up to the time we left, our experience was wonderful. My Service Dog Matilda was greeted and treated as a working dog should. The staff especially Karen took the time to talk to my client and she loved it, she says it's nice to be treated normal and not have a label on Dementia, for this I'm truely grateful. We moved comfortably around the House taking lots of photos.

We'd been to a concert here, loved the architecture so returned for the once a month tour, which we booked online in advance. I'd say there were 20 on the tour which are usually held on Saturday mornings. The tour guide was really knowledgeable and explained about why when and how it was built. We visited the court room the cells and up 200 steps to the clock. We were able to go outside for some fantastic views just below the clock. Really interesting, you get to see places. Highly recommended.
