Family Friendly Award for Castle Howard
Latest From: House & Grounds


We are very excited to have been crowned winners of the 'Best Christmas Experience' in the Little Vikings Awards!

Little Vikings are THE family guide to York and the surrounding area so it’s a real pleasure to be recognised with an award. A fantastic organisation offering lots of exciting ideas, hints and tips for fun days out with the kids, Little Vikings and their 2019 Awards are a celebration of the very best places for parents and families.

This Christmas was our biggest celebration yet and our ‘12 Days of Christmas’ experience dazzled and delighted visitors with stunning displays of pomp and splendour. With the winning design team of Charlotte Lloyd-Webber and Bretta Gerecke behind the displays, it was sure to be a magical and memorable experience. A 26ft Christmas tree, live music, magic shows and Father Christmas himself made it a fantastic family-friendly extravaganza.

As well as winning the 'Best Christmas Experience' category, Castle Howard was also highly commended for 'Best Attraction' and 'Best Day Out with an Adventure Playground'.
