The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

Floors Castle and Gardens

Floors Castle and Gardens are one of the finest Victorian gardens in Scotland with outstanding herbaceous borders (the spring, the summer, the blue and silver and the Hot Border) and glasshouses growing soft fruit and spectacular plants for display in Floors Castle.

The Millennium Garden with its French Style parterre, old variety of apple trees and the Queen’s summer house, built in 1867 for Queen Victoria to take afternoon tea, was designed to add a more formal feature to the gardens. This lovely garden, enclosed by the walled garden and beautiful Rhododendrons, features the intertwining initials of the present Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe and is a perfect contrast to the frenzy of colour and activity of the walled Garden.

The tapestry garden and dramatic fruit cage add a contemporary and stimulating slant to the Garden, come and see how the projects are evolving.

You can also further explore the vast array of flora and fauna within the extensive grounds of Floors Castle including a Woodland and River side walk and our new cycle trail.
