WELCOME TO THE YORKSHIRE ARBORETUM

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. Details of our opening times, prices etc. are on the Visit Us pages.

As well as being a beautiful place to enjoy 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 also offer weddings in an idyllic outdoor setting, venue hire, and a broad programme of outdoor education activities for school groups. Under 12's 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. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
