Places to See | Co. Down, Northern Ireland.
The award-winning Bangor Castle Walled Garden, located in the tranquil grounds of Castle Park, offers 2.5 acres of horticulture. This family attraction in Co Down is popular with visitors of all ages, particularly given its location next to Bangor Aurora Leisure Complex.
The Ward family designed the Bangor Castle Walled Garden in the 1840s. It was previously unopen to the public and was considered by many as a secret garden!
The southern section of the Garden remains true to its Victorian roots. It is divided into four quadrants – the kitchen garden, the herb and topiary garden, the damp garden and the flower garden. These four areas are separated by avenues of spectacular pleached lime trees and rose covered arches.
The northern section of the Garden offers visitor facilities including a small cafe, toilets and grassed area for picnics.
Open seasonally, March to October. Check website for times. Plus, all bank and public holidays 10am – 6pm. Formal tours can be arranged by appointment.
