The Yorkshire Arboretum is a stunning place with 120 acres of parkland, ponds and lakes just across from Castle Howard. Explore to your heart’s content in the meadows, glades and woodland. It’s the best kind of old-fashioned fun – grab a stick each and let your imagination run wild. When you’ve had enough adventuring, there’s even a cafe serving home cooked food. Visit this weekend (Friday 5th and Saturday 6th May) and it’s free entry for everyone!
