Free carer tickets

We welcome all visitors to Hillsborough Castle and aim to make your experience a fun and inspiring one that will make you want to return again and again.

Complimentary tickets for adult carers are available to collect on the day of your visit.

Guide dogs

All recognised guide, assistance or service dogs - including assistance dogs in training - are welcome at Hillsborough Castle and are permitted to accompany their owners on Castle tours. Make sure they are wearing their designated jacket or lead slip and remember to bring the dog’s 'Assistance Dog’s (UK)’ identification book with you.

Visitors with limited mobility

Castle and garden tours
The guided tour of the State Rooms is all on the ground floor and is accessible to all.
Please be advised that, due to the natural terrain of the gardens, some of the paths are unsuitable for wheelchair users and those with restricted mobility.

Wheelchairs and mobility aids
We have a number of wheelchairs available to borrow for the duration of your visit. Please contact: 028 9268 1376 to book in advance.

Disabled parking
Blue Badge holders can park on site. This can be arranged in advance by calling us on: 028 9268 1313

Unfortunately, due to the conservation risk posed to flooring, mobility scooters are not permitted inside the castle.
