Owner description: Castle Howard is one of England's finest historic houses, set in a thousand acres of sweeping parkland dotted with statues, temples, lakes and fountains. Inside discover world-renowned collections gathered by succeeding generations of the Howard family. Built over 300 years ago, today it still remains a family home.

We were taken aback by the beauty of this house and gardens. What made it even more enjoyable is the guides. So friendly and knowlegable, without being boring. They bring the house alive and it is obvious they enjoy their work. Wonderful food when we had lunch. Even the tractor ride (another great guide) down to the lake is fun. A special mention to the ladies in the gift shops full of fun. I think we will be coming again.

Castle Howard has THE most beautiful sights in north Yorkshire! It has outstanding scenery with themes at Easter and other calander events. Great for families and friends! The food is gorgous as well but slightly pricey!!!
I have also attended the concerts there such as olly murs (he's aMURSing) the atmosphere was amazing and perfect for a first concert for the youner generation!!! A very peaceful environment

...Castle Howard is a must. The smallish exhibition relating to the two screen versions of Brideshead Revisited is well-presented. The case for Waugh thinking of Castle Howard is well made though I always understood Madresfield was more the real inspiration.

Had a very enjoyable few hours wondering through this beautiful castle and grounds. They have a tractor ride, great kids play area, beautiful lake and well manacured grounds. We visited on a cold day in April, had a lovely time, if the weather was better you could easily spend the whole day. Ice cream at the entrance cafe is especially superb. Great staff too.
