Summer 2019 – New Adventure Playground at Castle Howard!
A day out with the kids at Castle Howard just became even more adventurous and intriguing.
Now they can join into the treetops of Yorkshire’s newest adventure playground, Skelf Island.
For centuries the Skelves have inhabited a secret world, over the water from Castle Howard, causing mischief and mayhem high up in the trees, interacting with birds and protecting wildlife.
Now they have become curious about the humans that visit and want to explore and play with them.
Ingenious treetop nest structures connected by rope bridges, slides, nets and climbing equipment will allow the Skelves to take young visitors on an adventure like no other.
Skelf Island is included in a gardens ticket.
