Drawing Castle Howard

Castle Howard is one of Britain’s finest historic houses, situated just outside York in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Built over 300 years ago by Sir John Vanbrugh, today it remains home to the Howard family. Castle Howard’s 1000 acres of parkland are a mixture of sweeping vistas, lakeside terraces, woodlands, temples and statues and formal gardens.

Castle Howard are on the lookout for the best drawing, painting or collage of the House and Gardens.

So get your crayons out, paint brushes at the ready and unleash your creative side for your chance to win a family gardens admission ticket when Castle Howard reopens (which includes access to the incredible Skelf Island Adventure Playground)

Share your pictures on twitter using #YorkshireTogether (don't forget to tag in @CastleHowardEst and @Welcome2Yorks!) or, if you're not on Twitter, email your entry through to twitter@yorkshire.com. The most creative entry will be chosen on Friday 10th April.

Take a look at the beautiful image below, which we are challenging you to re-create!
