Visit Date: April 2017
Living history. Walk in the footsteps of local and international politicians and recline like royalty in the beautiful sitting room at Hillsborough. Our small group was greeted in the entrance hall and taken on an intimate tour of the reception rooms currently used by The NI Secretary of State and the royal family when visiting. The informative guide spoke of the past and contemporary events including the Good Friday agreement. Plenty of stories to hear and photographs and art to view . You will recognise the names and faces. Follow with a walk around the gardens, both formal and informal.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
I would recommend to anyone who wants to bring a little current history to life (£8.50 adult, concessions available. But if history is not your thing £5 gains you entrance to the gardens. Tulips were out at the time of our visit, but there will be different displays to see throughout the year.
