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.

With woodland walks, tours, family activities, a café, gift shop, events, lakeside trails, venue hire and a comprehensive programme of outdoor education, we welcome visitors of all ages wanting to enjoy the space, serenity and beauty of this sheltered valley as well as those with an interest in our extensive collection of trees and shrubs.

Wander off by yourself to explore, follow a tree trail or book a tour. Walk for 10 minutes or lose yourself for hours...
