Bursting with colour, everyone will enjoy the breathtaking grounds surrounding Hillsborough Castle, with its delightful mix of woodlands, wild meadows and the more formal, landscaped gardens.
Our advice? Upon arrival, make your way to the stunning Walled Garden, a historical horticultural space where fruit, vegetables and flowers have been grown for the Castle since the 18th century. Get inspiration for your own garden or simply marvel at the Espalier fruit trees, which have been bearing apples and pears on the walls for more than 50 years.
The stunning Yew Tree Walk takes its name from the trees that mirror each other along a path, which once served as a major road for the surrounding town. The Moss Walk is exactly as you’d expect: a deep, soft carpet of moss growing beneath a canopy of lime trees.
Recent work has unveiled forgotten wonders such as the Lost Garden, and no walk through the grounds would be complete without a visit to Lady Alice’s Temple – the perfect lakeside place to stop, relax and just listen to the sounds of nature.
