The Grounds & Gardens
Whatever the weather, the Castle Howard landscape brings out the colour
and drama of the season.
With 1,000 acres to explore, Castle Howard is a haven of peace and tranquility with extensive woodland walks, temples, lakes and fountains.
The monumental landscape offers breathtaking views at every turn, taking in the countryside of the Howardian Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
As well as the dramatic landscape, Castle Howard is well known for its annual displays of daffodils, rhododendrons, bluebells and roses.
Spend a day relaxing in the informal parkland dotted with statues or admiring the formal gardens and meandering through woodland or along lakeside terraces.
Take a look at what you might see in our garden gallery and wildlife gallery. From March to October free daily outdoor tours take place covering a range of topics including The Walled Garden, The Temple of the Four Winds, 20th Century Landscape and Waterways.
