Details

Become a Castle Howard explorer and join in the adventure this summer. Our gardens will be brought to life with a range of interactive activities.

Every weekend, plus August Bank Holiday Monday, join woodland quests with Rusticus and reveal the stories of the intrepid adventurers who travelled the globe in search of plant treasure.

Test your skills with our 'have a go' challenges with climbing wall, raft building and archery, across the Bank Holiday weekend, Saturday 26 to Monday 28 August.

Take to the water when our family fun kayaking sessions return to the Great Lake from Saturday 19 to Monday 21 August. Join a half hour introductory session with a slalom race to finish! (Additional charge applies)

PLUS join in with daily craft activity, set off on a self-guided children’s trail to track down the lost animals with our brass-rubbing spotter and activity sheet and go wild in our gardens and parkland.

Take a ride on the Great Lake boat and identify the birds which spend their days on the water before having your own adventures on our lakeside playground.
