About Us

Castle Howard is one of Britain’s finest stately homes, 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. 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 Skelf Island, our new adventure playground with its ingenious treetop nest structures connected by rope bridges, slides, nets and climbing equipment.

Leave time to browse the shops and cafes, including farm shop, gift shop and garden centre.
