Christmas at Castle Howard

18 Nov - 23 Dec 2017

Beautifully decked out each Christmas by the Hon.Simon and Mrs Howard, a visit to Castle Howard fills the festive season with sparkle and cheer.

Approach the magnificent 18th-century house along the Christmas tree-lined drive. Inside, discover breathtaking interiors lit by candle and firelight, dressed with magnificent trees, a stunning display of traditional Howard family ‘twigs', winter garlands and floral arrangements.

This Christmas a host of angels will descend on Castle Howard to surprise and delight visitors. Inspired by the family art collections, fabulous creatures from elegant heralds to mischievous cherubs will populate the grand state rooms to spectacular effect: flamboyant floral creations and inspired decorations will create a unique festive ambiance. Favourite features returning include the awe-inspiring 25 foot dressed Great Hall Christmas tree and the fairytale gingerbread house.

With live music around the house; seasonal menus and festive afternoon tea; Christmas gifts and treats galore in Castle Howard’s own Gift Shops, Farm Shop and Garden Centre, plus cosy indoor market, there’s everything you need for a perfect Christmas.

Christmas at Castle Howard includes live music performances daily, audiences with Father Christmas and delicious seasonal menus in the restaurant and cafés. Remember to leave enough time to visit the gift shops, Farm Shop and Garden Centre where you can pick up that special Christmas gift.

Make this Christmas extra special for all the family, with a visit to Castle Howard.
