Hillsborough Castle and Gardens

We're looking forward to welcoming visitors to the castle and gardens. Please select the date and time of your visit below.

We are opening in line with Government guidelines and a variety of measures will be in place, including limited capacity and timed entry to ensure that we can provide everyone with a safe visit.

All arrivals are via the car park just off the southbound A1. The entrance to the Gardens from the village remains closed.

Our catering and toilet facilities are available, so please make sure you bring a face covering.

Castle visits are mostly self-guided with interaction from our Castle Hosts throughout the State Rooms.

Entrance to the castle is via the State Entrance door. You should allow up to 30 minutes from the car park to get to the castle entrance for the start of your visit.

Please have your ticket either pre-printed or on a mobile device to show to staff.
