Created for Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee and featuring the Greek Temple
Discover the charming formal garden and 19th-century summer house that adjoin the south terrace of Hillsborough Castle and Gardens.
The Jubilee Parterre was created to commemorate Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
A parterre is a formal garden, created by arranging planting beds symmetrically and linking pathways with tightly clipped border hedges.
Overlooking the Jubilee Parterre is the State Drawing Room, which features French windows that lead into this stunning formal garden. Members of the Royal Family enter the gardens through these doors for the annual royal garden party, which takes place on the South Lawn.
This mid-19th century summer house marks the end of the original Moira Road as it entered The Square behind.
Temples such as this were usually set within a landscape so this setting is unusual, but had the advantage of offering shelter for those wishing to admire the view.
From here you can see the entire South Terrace, the Jubilee Parterre, Yew Tree Walk and Lady Alice's Temple in the distance.
This playful bronze effect dachshund will charm any new owner. This fun decorative garden ornament features a miniature dachshund dog standing on its hind legs and is inspired by the history of royal dogs.
