Marvel at dramatic architecture & interiors. Castle Howard is one of Britain’s finest historic houses, situated just outside York in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Built over 300 years ago by Sir John Vanbrugh, today it remains home to the Howard family. Discover the house at your own pace, admiring its awe-inspiring architecture and interiors, with something to capture everyone’s imagination. Friendly and knowledgeable guides are on hand to share stories of the house, family and collections with visitors of all ages.

Enjoy stunning scenery all year, with almost 1,000 acres of Grade 1 listed parkland and gardens to explore. Spend the day in a monumental landscape studded with statues, temples, lakes and fountains and admire
sweeping countryside views. Meander along woodland paths and in the tranquil walled garden.

Children will love the lakeside adventure playground and can run wild in the gardens with a free children's trail leaflet.
