Description

Bangor Castle Victorian Walled Garden, located in the tranquil grounds of Castle Park, is popular with visitors of all ages.

The Ward family designed the Bangor Castle Walled Garden in the 1840s. It was previously closed to the public and was considered by many as a secret garden. The local council restored this beautiful garden and it was officially opened as a visitor attraction in April 2009.
The garden is divided into four different sections, each with its own horticultural personality. It also boasts two unique pieces of sculpture inspired by North Down's maritime history.
The garden won the Royal Horticultural Society Award for Permanent Landscaping in its first year of opening. Formal tours can be arranged by appointment.
The gardens are generally open from the end of March to the end of October. Check opening times >>
