Enjoy a fantastic family day out during the Easter holidays at Castle Howard. Take part in the Easter Animal Trail for children, and embark on an animal adventure around the Gardens; step into the magnificent House which reopens on the 29th March; and indulge in seasonal delights and Easter treats in our cafes and shops.

Easter Animal Trail

Discover a menagerie of willow animals in our Gardens this Easter, and encounter foxes, owls, hares, and more! Collect your beautifully illustrated trail map, and adventure around the Grounds to collect a series of clues to win a chocolatey prize. Included in House & Gardens and Gardens tickets.

Easter Fun at Skelf Island

The perfect place for young explorers to let off steam, Skelf Island Adventure Playground is open every day. Navigate rope bridges, whizz down slides, discover ingenious treetop nests and don't forget the zip wire.

Visit the House from 29th March

Castle Howard has been home to the Howard family for more than 300 years. Explore extraordinary architecture and beautiful interiors when you visit the House, including the Great Hall which rises 70 feet into the air. Follow the trail of delicately placed semi-precious eggs to celebrate Easter.
