Bangor Castle Walled Garden

It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.  Varieties of flowers, plants, fruit and vegetables mix with sculptures and a unique fountain with a tongue twister! We are thrilled that the Walled Garden is now open all year round (except on particular holidays). Please see opening hours.

The Ward family designed the Castle Park Walled Garden in the 1840s. It was never open to the public and was considered by many as a secret garden. The then named North Down Borough Council restored this beautiful the Garden and it was officially opened as a visitor attraction in April 2009. The 1.5 acre site has four distinct sections — the kitchen garden, the herb and topiary garden, the swamp garden and the flower garden. It boasts two unique pieces of sculpture inspired by North Down’s maritime history. Seating is available throughout the garden.

The garden is set within the picturesque surrounds of Castle Park which is also home to Bangor Castle (Town Hall) and North Down Museum.

Please note Cafe is cash only.
