An 18th-century kitchen garden, restored to its former glory
The Walled Garden dates back to the 18th century and is a large, four-acre site historically used to produce fruit, vegetables and flowers for the castle.
Opening in spring 2019, this wonderful and historical horticultural space will provide a stunning entrance to the castle grounds.
The site has been restored and re-presented to create a beautiful working and productive garden, complete with dipping pond, crop rotations, seasonal produce, herbaceous borders and an apple orchard.
Of particular interest is the Espalier fruit trees growing on the surrounding wall of the garden, which were planted around 50 years ago and now produce masses of apples and pears.
Visitors of all ages will be able to learn how crops are grown on a historic site, and get inspiration for their own gardening projects.
Produce from the Walled Garden will also be used in the nearby café, so you will be able to enjoy seasonal produce from the gardens all-year-round.
Meet Adam Ferguson, our Keeper of the Walled Garden, in this short film.
As part of the Hillsborough Castle Project completed in April 2019, Adam and his team have brought the garden to life with a new re-imagination of the planting and layout.
