THE HOUSEKEEPING staff at Harewood House have been hard at work preparing the estate for the start of 
the season.

From March 24 the Grade I listed building, home to the Lascelles family, will be open to the public.

And this year the estate is capitalising on the fact that it was a major setting for the popular ITV programme, Victoria and will be showcasing costumes from the drama, along with antiques from the Victorian era. A spokesperson for the house said: “We hope the success of Victoria will attract more to the house.

“It is so important to keep people interested and the show keeps things fresh and alive.”
