Castle Howard at Christmas
Fans of the popular ITV series ‘Victoria’ and the 1981 drama ‘Brideshead Revisited’ will recognise the famous facade of Castle Howard. Christmas is the perfect time to visit Castle Howard: the theatrical splendour of the House is enhanced by lavish decorations, based around a festive theme. There is also a gift emporium, perfect for picking up some special Christmas gifts. Our TV theme continues with a visit to the World of James Herriot, the real home and surgery of the author who wrote ‘All Creatures Great and Small’.
