FAQs

The Emmerdale Village Tour is BACK! Escape to the 'Yorkshire Dales' and go behind the scenes of your favourite soap.

Why is there an additional £2 charge for Harewood and what is this for?



Emmerdale is filmed deep within the Harewood Estate.

To gain access to the film set location, we run a park and ride service from the Harewood House visitor car park.

Our park and ride service with Harewood costs just £2pp and whilst it is obligatory, it offers our guests access to the grounds, gardens, café and facilities either before and/or after your tour. Please note, this charge includes access to Harewood's grounds and gardens, but not into the house. Some of the other chargeable activities are also not included. Tickets for the House can be purchased on the day of your visit at the House Door 

Please note: The Harewood Trust is a charity, so all contributions made go towards a range of projects, whether that be vital conservation and maintenance work to preserve the historic fabric of the house; work to develop and maintain the expansive grounds, gardens and facilities, or to support of their education and community programmes. Your support helps to ensure Harewood is here for the long-term enjoyment of all visitors. Registered Charity Number 517753
