Mausoleum - Credit Joe Cornish

The Castle Howard Estate is littered with many different monument & follies that are all spectacular in their own right. This year, don't miss out on your chance to visit the awe-inspiring Howard Family Mausoleum.

Designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor, the Mausoleum stands proudly on a hill overlooking the House and Gardens, and due to its fragile structure is rarely accessible to the public. Join our curators on this special tour, wandering the 18th century parkland and then visiting the Mausoleum itself. You will have time to walk the surrounding colonade, then visit the domed chapel and family vaults below.

Tours will be taking place on Friday 15th May, Wednesday15th July and Saturday 15th August 2020. The event will begin at 10.30am and will last approximately 2.5 hours.*

Tickets cost £35.00 including inclusive admission to the House & Gardens. Tickets for Friends of Castle Howard start from £10.00.
