Christmas at Castle Howard

Christmas at Castle Howard
Enjoy a Christmas day out like no other at Castle Howard! Tinkerbell has sprinkled fairy dust all over our House and Gardens, and transformed Castle Howard into a beautiful winter wonderland.
12th November - 2nd January

Our main House is transformed into a Peter Pan-themed odyssey, with beautiful decorations, installations, and projections. Plus, book tickets to meet Father Christmas with your little ones, or take part in a Guided Tour or Wreath Workshop to get into the festive spirit.

Complete your Christmas at Castle Howard experience with special mementos from our Bauble Emporium, elevate your visit with The Darling’s Afternoon Tea, or treat yourself to toasted marshmallows in our twinkly Courtyard. Don’t forget to take home delicious Christmassy supplies from our Farm Shop, and a British-grown Christmas tree from our Garden Centre.

We encourage you to read our Frequently Asked Questions section before you make your booking, to best help you decide how to plan your day. We’re looking forward to welcoming you this Christmas.
