Nothing says Easter like cute fluffy animals, and that’s just what you’ll find at Castle Howard over the bank holiday weekend. Get up close to your favourite farmyard friends at the mobile petting zoo: there’ll be a miniature pony, micro pig, rabbits, guinea pigs, alpacas, goats and more. But don’t hang out with the friendly farmers all day long – there are scarecrows to find! Hunt in the giant straw bale and share your scarecrow selfies. Before you leave, head off into the gardens on the Easter trail to round up the animals that have wandered too far from the farm. Spot them all and claim a prize!
