The Howard family has called Castle Howard home for 300 years but their house is your house as you explore one of Yorkshire’s finest historic estates.
Private curator-led walks and talks are your chance to dig deeper into the dramatic interiors and wider landscapes of Castle Howard, set within 1,000 acres of breathtaking parkland in the Howardian Hills.
You can visit buildings not normally open to visitors – like The Library, a working office that is used by the family during the week – and gain access to some of their fascinating archive documents and maps.
Generations of Howards have been laid to rest in the Mausoleum – perhaps the most imposing building in the grounds – while the current owner, the Hon Simon Howard, got married in the fabulously romantic Temple of the Four Winds.
Your own wedding temple? That’s seriously classy, just like a day at one of England’s most glamorous historic houses.
