VW Festival Leeds 2012

The VW Festival is held at Harewood House, Leeds, the home of the Earl and Countess of Harewood, was built in the mid-18th century with money made in the West Indian sugar trade. It has been home to the Lascelles family ever since, reflecting the changing tastes and styles of the past 250 years. This is the eighth year for the VW Festival and my second visit to the area.

I was included in the Historic Volkswagen Club display.

The Historic VW Club display, set around a natural amphitheatre.

I found only one Type 4, displayed in the Show-n-Shine area.

Everyone wants a bus these days ...

The house stands in a magnificent setting.

The back of the house is complimented by a beautifully maintained formal garden. Click on the picture for a full-sized view, then click your browser’s Back button to return here.
