About us

This Christmas a host of angels will descend on Castle Howard. Inspired by its archiecture, interiors and art collections these fabulous creatures, classic and contemporary, will populate the grand state rooms to spectacular effect. Together with glorious floral creations and inspired decorations, Angels on High will surprise and delight.

As well as this unique 'angelic' Christmas experience, visitors will also enjoy their Castle Howard favourites including the soaring Christmas tree in the Great Hall and the return of Bompas & Parr's Gingerbread Castle Howard.

Younger visitors will be entranced by the Magical Christmas Garden - a peek into the imaginary world of Father Christmas. There will also be a chance to pre-book an Audience with Father Christmas or an Enchanted Evening with Father Christmas, unique opportunities for children to meet Father Christmas at this magical time. Tickets for our Father Christmas experiences will go on sale towards the end of September - please sign up to our e-newsletter to receive updates.

And for an even more magical ambience, Twilight Visits over the weekend of 16 and 17 December enable visitors to enjoy the angels, candles and firelight, as night falls.

Christmas at Caste Howard will also include live music around the house; seasonal menus and festive afternoon tea by the fireside in the Grecian Hall; and Christmas gifts and treats galore in the gift shops, farm shop, garden centre and cosy indoor market.
