For those searching for something a little different this Father’s Day, you may be pleased to know that Harewood House is playing host to a classic car and motor show organised by Leeds’ own Yorkshire Post.
Besides an array of classic, sports and modified vehicles, the James Dylan Motorcycle Stunt Team and the Company of Horsemen Wild West and Cossack Trick Riding Team shall also be making appearances at the event.
Harewood House itself is often considered to be one of the jewels of Yorkshire, with it being a member of the Treasure Houses of England – making it one of ten foremost historic homes in the country.
What’s more, if you book tickets before the day itself, you can get 10% off, and they also include entry to Harewood’s grounds and gardens.
