The House and Family
The Howard story is one of ambition, public service, liberal politics and artistic endeavours.
Today, above all, it is about the challenge of preserving the family home as a national treasure for family and visitors alike to enjoy.
Castle Howard’s friendly and knowledgeable guides are on hand to share our stories with you as you tour the house at your own pace, exploring a treasure trove of inspiring architecture and interiors, as well as world-renowned collections.
Information boards highlight key stories and items in most rooms.
