About The Yorkshire Arboretum

Open from March to November, the Yorkshire Arboretum offers 120 acres of peace and tranquillity on the historic Castle Howard estate. Nestled in a beautiful sheltered valley, you'll find a botanically diverse tree collection, wildflower meadows, sweeping vistas and native wildlife. There are tree trails to follow and a programme of walks, talks and family activities. The Arboretum Café specialises in fresh home-cooked food made with locally-sourced ingredients. Dogs are welcome on leads and there's a generous designated off-lead area too.
