Christmas at Castle Howard: Angels on High
Sat 18th November 2017 to Sat 23rd December 2017
Event Type: Event for all

This Christmas a host of angels will descend on Castle Howard. Inspired by its architecture, interiors and art collections these fabulous creatures, classic and contemporary, will populate the grand state rooms to spectacular effect. Together with glorious floral creations and inspired decorations, Angels on High will surprise and delight.

The House will be open 10am - 3pm (Last Admission) Mon - Friday and until 4pm (Last Admission) on weekends.

As well as this unique 'angelic' Christmas experience, visitors will also enjoy their Castle Howard favourites including the soaring Christmas tree in the Great Hall and the return of Bompas & Parr's Gingerbread Castle Howard.

Younger visitors will be entranced by the Magical Christmas Garden - a peek into the imaginary world of Father Christmas.  There will also be a chance to pre-book an Audience with Father Christmas or an Enchanted Evening with Father Christmas, unique opportunities for children to meet Father Christmas at this magical time. Tickets for our Father Christmas experiences will go on sale towards the end of September - please sign up to our e-newsletter to receive updates.

And for an even more magical ambience, Twilight Visits over the weekend of 16 and 17 December enable visitors to enjoy the angels, candles and firelight, as night falls.

Last admission to the House during the Twilight weekend will be at 7pm.
The Courtyard Cafe, Farm Shop and Carrige House Gift Shop will be open until 7pm.

Christmas at Caste Howard will also include live music around the house; seasonal menus and festive afternoon tea by the fireside in the Grecian Hall; and Christmas gifts and treats galore in the gift shops, farm shop, garden centre and cosy indoor market.
