Generations of the Howard family have welcomed visitors to Castle Howard, one of Britain's finest historic houses, for over 300 years and today we extend this warm welcome to you.

Castle Howard is very much a family home, and it is our pleasure to share this magical place with you. We hope you will enjoy your day with us, and take your time to explore every corner of these glorious gardens, the unique and theatrical architecture of the house, the fine art collections and our family memorabilia and stories.

Your support is greatly appreciated: income generated goes directly towards the maintenance and restoration of the house and grounds, securing it for future generations of visitors to enjoy.

"One of the top 10 buildings you must visit in your lifetime" The Telegraph, 2018
