Bee-having over the summer

Find out all there is to know about these fascinating honey-makers in Harewood House’s Walled Garden

Have a young budding apiarist in the family? Make a beeline for the Walled Garden at Harewood House where they are holding beekeeping taster days so you can find out more about these winged insects.

Members of the Harrogate & Ripon Beekeepers’ Association, who have a working apiary in the garden, will demonstrate beekeeping skills in action and answer your questions about honey, plants and keeping a colony.

Make sure you remember to keep your arms and legs covered to avoid any nasty stings, and veils will be provided. The beekeeping demonstrations will take place every Saturday from 2pm until 3pm throughout the summer. There’s no entry fee for this event, just get your Grounds & Below Stairs ticket and turn up.
