Closure notice: Friday 18th February 2022
Latest From: House & Grounds, Estate


Due the imminent arrival of storm Eunice, the gardens and playground will be closed to visitors all day on Friday the 18th of February. After assessing the weather warnings in place across Yorkshire and considering the risks posed by ancient trees as well as dense woodland areas across the estate, it would not be safe for us to allow public access during such extreme weather. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause but the safety of our visitors and staff is paramount.

The Courtyard outlets and the Garden Centre will open from 10am but will close early at 1pm, and from that time onwards, the whole site will be closed.

If you have made plans to visit us, please email to rearrange your visit or receive a refund. Our phone lines will not be manned on Friday the 18th so sending us an email will be the fastest way we can amend your booking.

We plan to open on Saturday 19thand Sunday 20th but should this change due to further inclement weather, we will update our website and social media accordingly. Please make sure you check our channels before you set off for your visit.

To all our visitors, please stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you to Castle Howard soon.
