Conservation and restoration works in the House

We’re working towards a big unveiling in 2025

We are working on some major projects in the House to restore and refresh some of our beautiful historic interiors. This amazing work will help us conserve and re-interpret the House and collections for future visitors to enjoy.

Castle Howard is a living and breathing home, made special and unique by the Howard family adding their flair and style to the interiors over centuries, and we are very excited to be part of this once-in-a-generation project.

The big reveal will be in Spring 2025 when the work finishes and visitors can enjoy the changes. Over the next few months follow the details of the process, including spotlighting skilled and specialist craftspeople, illustrating some of the transformations, and sharing new stories about our collection.
