Why are we asking for your email address?

We ask for your email address so we can update you on Memory Walk and share fundraising hints and tips. To register online you will need to provide an email address. If you have difficulties registering, please call us on 0300 330 5452.

With every step you will help change the lives of people affected by dementia – now and in the future. Register yourself or a team, and start fundraising today!

Sign up and walk all over dementia today. Your £10 entry fee supports us to organise the day, but unfortunately it won’t beat dementia alone. This is why your fundraising is so important. An average Memory Walker raises over £160 each, so we suggest you set this as your fundraising target. But whatever your target, and whatever you raise, you will be changing the lives of those affected by dementia!

We’ll be here to support you every step of the way and you’ll receive a pack with everything needed for the event, including your Memory Walk t-shirt.

Thinking about taking part as a group? Invite your friends and family to join you by sharing the link and team code sent in your confirmation email. Team members can set individual fundraising targets, or you can fundraise together and work towards a team total.

Meeting point

Memory Walk will start and finish on the field in front of the house and formal gardens. Please note, this area is on grass.

Here, you’ll get ready to walk alongside hundreds of others, raising funds to defeat dementia. Take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for by leaving a message on the Memory Tree, and see it blossom throughout the morning.

Walk routes

There is one route length available at this Memory Walk. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change, and suitable footwear is recommended.

The 6.5km route will take you around the grounds of Castle Howard, where you can take in the Temple of the Four Winds and the Mausoleum as well as its parkland, farmland and forested landscape. Due to the nature of the route, this walk is unsuitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
