Free carer tickets

We welcome all visitors to Hillsborough Castle and Gardens, and aim to make your experience fun and inspiring so you will want to return again and again.

Disabled visitors are entitled to bring an accompanying adult/carer free of charge.

Please note that carer tickets can only be obtained on the day of your visit showing proof of registered disability.

All recognised guide, assistance or service dogs - including assistance dogs in training - are welcome at Hillsborough Castle and Gardens, and are permitted to accompany their owners on castle tours.

Please make sure dogs are wearing their designated jacket or lead slip and remember to bring their Assistance Dog's (UK) identification book with you.
