Embark on a family adventure at Castle Howard. With hundreds of acres of woodland, gardens and parkland to explore, there are endless corners to discover and a huge variety of ways to spend your time.
Go wild at the Adventure Playground, set sail across the Great Lake (boat trips during the summer only, weather permitting), and ride the land-train. Discover more about the Howard family home with our children's quizzes and self-guided trail, and join our family-friendly staff for outdoor tours or special school holiday events.
Enjoy browsing our wide selection of shops - including farm shop, plant centre and chocolate shop - and treat the family to home-cooked food from our cafés and delicious ice cream.
Castle Howard is a beautiful day out for the whole family.
