Seasonal Spotters Guide


Arguably everyone’s favourite season, summer brings back memories of long, lazy days spent frolicking in the sunshine and the nostalgic scent of freshly cut grass and melting ice lollies. Castle Howard is the perfect place for a summers day out and the Walled Garden comes into its own this season.
The Rose Garden looks truly lovely in June with soft scented blooms creating a vision in pink and white. The vegetables in the potager will be ready for the first harvest around the end of June, with many going straight to the kitchens or down to the Farm Shop for visitors to buy. The trickle of the fountain has a cooling effect on a hot sticky day and a picnic in the shade is just the thing with the beautiful sound of bird song filtering through the trees above.
