Christmas in Narnia

Saturday 13th November 2021 – Monday 2nd January 2022

Step through the wardrobe into an enchanting adventure this festive season. Anicyspell has been cast on this mystical land where it is always winter, but will Christmas spirits be restored and will warmth and joy return?

Whilst Castle Howard is open from 10am daily, you can also join us after dark for the most enchanting ‘Christmas in Narnia’ experience. Here at Castle Howard, we think that twilight is one of the best times to visit. Icy twinkling lights at dusk, sparkling trees against the dark sky, and an indulgent winter warmer or two in our cafés, all make your Christmas visit that bit more special.

See the lavishly decorated interiors of Castle Howard transformed. Enjoy breath-taking dramatic installations, lighting and soundscapes evoking everything we love about this special time of year. Marvel at the 25-foot Christmas tree adorned with over 3000 baubles providing a magnificent highlight in the Great Hall.

You can easily enjoy a full day with us as you soak up the jovial atmosphere, enjoy an array of indulgent winter treats in our catering outlets and warm yourself by roaring log fires. Find that special present in our Gift Shops or Garden Centre and why not visit our Farm Shop to choose from the finest local produce for your Christmas dinner party.

Don’t miss your chance to meet the big man himself as Father Christmas will be making some very special visits to Castle Howard this year.

The magical winter world of ‘Christmas in Narnia’ is waiting for you.

Tickets are now on sale and are available to book via the link below. This year,  prices of tickets will vary subject to whether you choose to book on a peak or off peak date.
