Castle Howard

A lovely place to visit at Christmas


Helen Bagnall recommends you pay it a visit

I went to enjoy the Castle Howard Christmas decorations last week and they were tremendous. The theme is the Twelve Days of Christmas and there was the most spectacular display.  

The catering facility had been extended to cater for the increased numbers and I enjoyed a hot turkey sandwich and mince pie.  What better to put me in the festive mood? 

There were plenty of tempting gifts and the plant centre had lovely Christmas wreaths.  The display is on until December 31.  

I must also recommend Burton Agnes Hall, rather more modestly decorated than Castle Howard...... but with knitted mistletoe!
