Get ready for the Round Robin Games this July!

Hillsborough Castle and Gardens has long been the venue for political negations and working together to solve problems – this July challenge yourself and family members to mental physical challenges around the gardens.

With interactive and family activities around the gardens, can you and your family, friends and maybe some new friendly rivals get across the Crocodile Swamp or complete the Monkey Puzzle at Hillsborough Castle and Gardens?



Crocodile Swamp!

Move ‘as one’ with your group while walking the ski’s along a course to cross the 'crocodile invested swamp' by using a a set of large wooden ski. 

Monkey Puzzle

Work together to solve a puzzle by solving a sequence to move wooden disks from one post to another. 

Giant Jenga  

The classic game but much bigger! Using large wooden pieces, play using the traditional rules or mix it up and try to build a tower as high as possible.

Bunny Hop

Hop through a grid-shaped maze like a bunny to find a safe path through the poisonous yoghurt!

Egg Run

Deliver eggs safely into a basket of hay as you try to transport a ball over a course using only the provided guttering lengths. 

Target Archery Range 

Try your hand at archery, with a range of bows available for both adults and children.
