Castle Howard is one of the most special destinations in England. Lonely Planet called it “One of the world’s top ten greatest mansions and grand houses” – we haven’t visited all of them but Castle Howard is magnificent.

Wow is we said when we stepped into Castle Howard. Located about 15 miles from York, it makes for a great day trip.

With awe-inspiring architecture and grand interiors, the friendly and knowledgeable guides breath life into this magnificent 18th century house situated in breathtaking parkland that is dotted with temples, lake statues and fountains, formal gardens, and woodland gardens. We enjoyed our tour inside the house with guides who include stories of the house, family, and collections.

mportant driving tip:
Because many of the roads in England are smaller country roads with many confusing roundabouts, getting lost is not hard. In fact, it can be fun if you can get back on track.

Here is a wonderful tip... Make sure you have GPS and ask for a lesson in its use at your rental car company if you get it from them. The postal code in Great Britain typically has enough information to direct you to your hotel or destination. So, look up postal codes for your hotels and destinations so you can enter them in as you go through your day of explorations. We used a centrally located church or hotel for the villages. Sometimes the GPS asks to confirm the street name and number, so also having an address helps. Also, often just putting in the town/village name will take you to the right direction and you can follow signs to the town center.
