    Queen's 91st Birthday Gun Salute

    17 Jun 2017 - 17 Jun 2017

    11:30 - 12:30

    Hillsborough Castle, The Square, Hillsborough, BT26 6AG

    An event usually reserved for VIP guests! We invite you to join us on Saturday 17th June for this iconic royal tradition. At precisely 12:00 the Royal Irish Brigade will fire a 21-round gun salute in honour of HRM Queen Elizabeth II, who in February this year became Britain’s longest serving Monarch. What a wonderful excuse (as if you need one) to get out and enjoy summer in the gardens at Hillsborough Castle. Guests are asked to gather at the South Terrace for a safety briefing at 11:30 prior to the gun salute at 12:00. Ear plugs will be provided. Attendance at the Gun Salute is included in general garden admission or Guided Castle Tour ticket. Why not make a day of it? Bring along a picnic and enjoy a leisurely lunch within the beautiful gardens and explore the meandering waterways and woodland which make up this stunning 96 acre site. Alternatively, book a Guided Castle Tour ticket and you'll enjoy full access to the gardens and the Gun Salute, plus the added benefit of a guided tour of this intriguing royal residence with one of our expert guides. Let us welcome you as honoured guests as you experience the stories of the Castle and explore its elegant State Rooms. Castle tours last approximately 45 minutes and are available at 10:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00 or 16:00.

    Join us for a summer afternoon in the gardens as we mark the Queen's official 91st birthday with a ceremonial gun salute!
