Welcome to the Yorkshire Arboretum
The Yorkshire Arboretum is a glorious, 120 acre garden of trees from around the world set in a stunning landscape of parkland, lakes and ponds on the Castle Howard Estate near York.
Many birds, mammals and insects also call this place home. Perhaps you'll catch a glimpse of our resident barn owls, find wild orchids, watch jewel-bright dragonflies dancing across the surface of the lake, or see some of the many butterflies resident in our wildflower meadows.
Wander off by yourself to explore, follow a tree trail or even book a tour. Walk for 10 minutes or lose yourself for hours...
The Yorkshire Arboretum is indebted to the many talented photographers whose work illustrates this website. These include, amongst others, Harry & Joyce Kingman, John Grimshaw, Ron Cooke and Roy Howell.
