Groups at Christmas

Beautifully decorated and with an array of festive activities taking place, Christmas at Castle Howard is perfect for groups.

This year we'll be celebrating a countryside Christmas and bringing the outside in from Saturday 19 November to Friday 23 December 2016.

For a truly magical start to Christmas, visit Castle Howard and discover the house festooned with fresh fruits, berries and foliage gathered from the estate. Soaring fresh trees sparkle with lights, garlands and wreaths of greenery intertwine with cinnamon and orange, and branches of oak hand cut from the estate glisten with baubles.

A daily festive indoor market, Christmas afternoon teas and private dining options, and live music make Castle Howard the perfect Christmas experience. Plus there's a range of shops and cafés to treat yourself in too.

Please contact Group Sales  to book your Christmas visit and for details of private group dining packages on 01653 648621 or email
