This summer, our famous adventure playground with treetop nest structures connected by rope bridges, slides, nets, and climbing equipment will be brought to life with theme activities during the holidays.
Join the Skelves for a spellbinding summer of adventure at Castle Howard. The Summer solstice is past and it’s a time when the Skelves magic is strong, whisking families away on their very own adventure in the woods. Join Rowan, the Skelves’ healer and potion-maker, as she tells the story of how she forged a bond with a very special Tawny Owl on an adventure to capture the healing power of the sun! Then discover for yourself the world of the Skelves’ Wild Wood where play and creativity await you!
You can access Skelf Island and our themed summer activities with a valid Gardens and Grounds ticket.
Please note: self-led activities will be available during the week while the Skelves will visit and perform on the weekends during summer holidays.
