The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

Floors Castle and Gardens

Fall under the spell of the beauty of the Scottish Borders and learn about the area's enthralling history. Discover a gentler pace of life amid sweeping valleys, ancient woodland and heather clad moorlands. Just over an hour's drive from Edinburgh and Newcastle and on the edge of the bustling town of Kelso, you will find Floors Castle grounds and gardens - the perfect setting and place to enjoy wonderful walks and views. From a hearty woodland or riverside walk to a stroll around the Walled & formal gardens, there are walks to suit everyone.

The herbaceous borders (the Spring, the Summer, the Blue and Silver and the Hot Border) flower at different points throughout late Spring and the Summer months are truly spectacular and see the recent developments including the Tapestry Garden and fruit cage evolve.
