You should arrive at least 30mins before your selected ticket time as the Castle is a 20-30min walk from our car park. Our Palace Hosts will meet you at the State Entrance. Most visitors spend approx. 45mins inside the Castle.

Entrance to the castle is via the State Entrance door.

All arrivals are via the car park just off the southbound A1. There is a pedestrian entrance to the gardens from Hillsborough village.
