Many people contribute to the upkeep of Castle Howard and with this comes the challenge of securing it for future generations. Restoration and conservation work to the house and across the 10,000 acre estate, including nearly 200 listed buildings and monuments, is ongoing.

Family, staff and visitors all play a role in making Castle Howard what it is today.
