Taking pride in the past
Updated 2 July. Following guidance from the government, outdoor spaces at Hillsborough Castle are now open Thursday-Sunday. The castle will reopen 30 July. Please read our visit information.
From royal relationships and public scandals to political activism and evolving attitudes, Hillsborough Castle and Gardens' connection to LGBTQ+ lives has existed for centuries.
Join us on this specialist tour as we uncover the hidden histories of Hillsborough Castle from a different perspective. Explore changing attitudes to sexuality and gender identity from over 300 years of history, using stories from the castle's past and the rich collection of objects and paintings on display.
Tours are free for Historic Royal Palaces Members and can be booked in advance. Please log on to the Membership Portal to book your place.
