Castle Howard, Castle Howard, North Yorkshire

Castle Howard is a grand stately home set within 1,000 acres of beautiful countryside, 15 miles from York in North Yorkshire.

The majority of this spectacular residence was built between 1699 and 1712 for the 3rd Earl of Carlisle, and is still one of the finest private residences in Britain. It has been the home of the Howard family for more than 300 years and is often seen in film or TV productions, most notably Brideshead Revisited.

Not a castle in the true sense of the word, the term is often used for English country houses constructed after the castle building period and doesn’t have a military function.

Castle Howard is not only a visitor attraction but also a working estate, supporting farming and forestry enterprises. The grounds and on-site shops and cafes are open all year round, with the house open to the public from March to November. For more information on all that Castle Howard has to offer, visit
