Castle Howard Grounds
Castle Howard’s gardens and parkland are a mixture of sweeping vistas, lakeside terraces, woodlands, temples and statues and formal gardens. With so much to enjoy, you can easily spend a day exploring the vast grounds of Yorkshire’s finest stately home and gardens.
In the 18th century walled garden enjoy a stunning collection of heritage roses, whose heady scent and vibrant colours bring the borders to life in summer. Meander through a sea of blue and white delphiniums with arbours, herbaceous borders and a carp pond creating the perfect place of tranquillity to spend an afternoon. In the ornamental vegetable garden, sweet pea wigwams sit amongst the vegetable patches filled with traditional English garden crops.
The imposing Atlas Fountain dominates the south parterre, which also boasts an impressive collection of lead statues, lakes and terraces with the Temple of The Four Winds giving stunning 360 degree views of the surrounding hills and monuments.
Ray Wood houses a prestigious collection of rhododendrons as well as glades of Pieris, wild roses, magnolias, hydrangeas, viburnums, maples and rowans which sit alongside rare botanical finds from around the world. Winding paths throughout give endless opportunity to explore and discover the woodland garden in all seasons.
Children will love the lakeside adventure playground and can run wild in the gardens with a free children's trail leaflet.
Leave time to browse the shops and cafes, including farm shop, gift shop and garden centre.
