Castle Howard - 'One of the World's Top Ten Greatest Mansions and Grand Houses' - Lonely Planet's 1,000 Ultimate Sights

Home to the Howard family for over 300 years, Castle Howard is a magnificent 18th-century residence set within 1,000 acres of breathtaking landscape in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

So much more than a visitor attraction, Castle Howard is also a thriving rural estate with many traditional enterprises such as farming and forestry. The profits generated from all estate businesses contribute towards the on-going restoration and conservation of 200 listed buildings and monuments.

Visit and enjoy world-renowned collections, stunning architecture and inspiring family stories. Relax amid idyllic gardens, enjoy woodland and lakeside walks, and let off steam on the adventure playground.  Castle Howard's changing programme of events and exhibitions offers something for all the family, as well as an excuse to visit time and time again. When visiting, do not forget to visit our estate shops, which include a busy Farm Shop and Garden Centre. If you are planning to camp or caravan locally, why not stay at our Lakeside Holiday Park.

Castle Howard is also a spectacular venue for weddings and entertaining, as well as an idyllic location to live and work, with a choice of residential properties and commercial units available to lease on the estate.

The 1,000 acre gardens and parkland, adventure playground and stable couryard shops and cafes are open all year from 10am until dusk. The house re-opens Sat 24th March until 30th October and then again for Christmas from Saturday 19th November until 23rd December.
