The Glen at Hillsborough Castle and Gardens is a typical Victorian garden feature, which comes to life in spring and summer.
See colourful magnolias, camelias and rhododendrons, deciduous azaleas and spectacular Embothrium from early March to late May.
Then in summer the luxuriant ferns create a shady area to sit and listen to the stream — an ideal stop on your wander through the gardens on a sunny day.
Look out for the statue of Ossian and accompanying bench and stones in the Grotto, which together tell the story of legendary Irish poet Ossian and the castle's links to the Romantic movement and the Gaelic Revival.
The Crown Jewels reside at the Tower of London and are worn by British kings and queens on their coronations and royal occasions. Our magnificent Crown Jewels collection make the perfect souvenir.
