Harewood ( ) is a village and civil parish in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, West Yorkshire, England. The A61 runs through the village, from Leeds city centre in the south to Harrogate in the north. The A659 runs through the village from Collingham in the east, briefly joining the A61 to descend the slopes of the Wharfe valley before continuing towards Pool-in-Wharfedale in the west.

Harewood Arms

The village is mainly known for its vicinity to Harewood House ( ), a stately home, and is also home to the UK's longest motorsport hillclimb, Harewood speed Hillclimb (pronounced ).

The village school (Harewood C of E Primary School) and Gateways School stand opposite the grounds of the Harewood estate on the A61 and was built by the Estate in 1864 for the estate workers' children. In 2004 and 2008, the school was awarded "Outstanding" marks following Ofsted inspections.

All Saints' Church, the former parish church, stands to the west of the village, within the grounds of Harewood House. The former being built in the 15th century, but the village was relocated in the late 18th century, leaving the church isolated. It is a grade I listed building in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.

The exterior set for the soap opera Emmerdale is located within the Harewood estate.[1]
