Castle Howard, York, North Yorkshire

As seen in ITVs Victoria, Castle Howard is one of Britain’s finest historic houses.

Built in the 18th century by Sir John Vanbrugh the grand house sits in 1,000 acres of parkland and gardens in the Howardian Hills – a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just outside York. In the house admire awe-inspiring architecture, world renowned works of art and allow our guides to share stories of the Howard family who have lived at Castle Howard ever since it was built. Outside, sweeping parkland dotted with lakes, temples and statues; a formal walled garden and an impressive woodland housing a rare botanical collection offer endless opportunity to explore. Plus, enjoy the adventure playground, gift shop, farm shop, garden centre cafes and a range of events throughout the year.
