Hillsborough Castle & Gardens
The Hillsborough Castle & Gardens is located just 20 minutes outside Belfast just of the M1. The castle is the Queen’s official Northern Ireland residence, and the site of some of the region’s biggest discussions and decisions; past, present, and future. At Hillsborough, you are experiencing history in the making. Explore the plush and lovingly resorted State Rooms including Throne Room, State Drawing Room, Lady Grey’s Study, State Dining Room, Red Room, and Stair Hall.
The guide will share tales of celebrations, diplomacy, and negotiations that have taken place at the castle over the years. This is a working royal residence that has hosted members of the Royal Family as a ceremonial and personal base since 1922 and the tour gives you an intimate glimpse behind the scenes of a real royal household.
Spend time visiting the stunning gardens which date back to the 1760s. Here you will find ornate formal gardens, tranquil woodland, walled garden, and beautiful meadows.
