Description
4 days a week

Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after
the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, the
Banqueting House, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. We help
everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped
society in some of the greatest palaces ever built. Hillsborough
Castle is a working Royal Residence, the base for the Secretary of
State for Northern Ireland and a great place for the public to
visit. In early 2014 the operation of the Castle passed from the
Northern Ireland Office to Historic Royal Palaces (HRP). It will
continue to act as a residence but there will be considerable
investment to increase public access, improve the visitor experience
significantly and tell the stories of its fascinating history and
glorious gardens. An essential part of this major development is
the recruitment of a high calibre and highly professional team to
transform Hillsborough Castle into a ‘must see’ destination.
