But visitors are being warned must pre-book online because of reduced on-site capacity as the estate strives to deal with social distancing.

“Our team is looking forward to welcoming our Members and visitors back to over 120 acres of open spaces, with a new temporary natural outdoor play area (allowing for distancing), access to the gardens and bird garden, shop, and Grab n Go food and drink from the Courtyard Café,” said a spokesman.

“We have had to reduce our on-site capacity, so all visitors must book online to ensure the safety of everyone at Harewood.”
