Christmas at Castle Howard.

Visit Castle Howard between 16th November to 5th January 2020 for your chance to experience the magical festive take over. Take in the spectacular decorations as you journey through the House's grand state rooms. Fires and candles will be lit and seasonal music will bring the atmosphere to life. Castle Howard's 25 foot Christmas Tree with over 3,000 baubles is breathtaking sight to be seen!

The Christmas Masquerade is a festive delight for all ages, celebrating the House's theatrical roots and the influence of the Italian Baroque on its magnificent architecture and interiors. Amongst the sumptuous decorations and awe-inspiring costumes, a troupe of travelling players prepare festive entertainments for the guests. These exuberant mischievous characters - Harlequin, Colombine, Pierrot and the Zanni Clown are part of the famous Commedia dell Arte who became the much-loved characters of the pantomimes that remain one of our best beloved Christmas traditions. A magical immersive experience that will embody the spirit of the season in true Castle Howard style.

Take your time and indulge in winter warmers from one of the seasonal catering outlets or pick up a last minute present in the gift shop, farm shop or garden centre. For a small extra charge, on selected dates, you can also book some time with the big man and check who is on the naughty list.
