The Yorkshire Arboretum is a glorious 120-acre garden of trees in a stunning landscape of parkland, lakes and ponds in the historic setting of the Castle Howard Estate near York. New trees are planted each year and the grounds enhanced by wildflower meadows and large numbers of spring and early summer flowering bulbs. Visitors of all ages are welcome to enjoy the space, serenity and beauty of this sheltered valley.
As well as being a beautiful place to visit in all seasons there's a café serving delicious, seasonal home-cooked food, and a variety of souvenirs and gift ideas are available in the Arboretum Shop. A woodland playground, free weekly tours, family activities, and a busy events programme ensure there's always something to do and see here, whenever you visit.
We offer weddings in an idyllic outdoor setting, venue hire, and a broad programme of outdoor education activities for school groups. Under 12s are admitted free of charge and group bookings are warmly welcomed.
Wander off by yourself to explore or book a tour. Walk for 10 minutes or lose yourself for hours.
