Castle Howard in the Easter Holidays

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.

Our enchanting trail is for children and families, and is a lovely outdoor experience surrounded by nature’s beauty. Don’t miss our Bunny photo opportunity to capture your Easter day out and look out for unexpected animals as you go! Included in House & Gardens and Gardens tickets.
