Welcome to Floors Castle & Gardens

We are delighted to announce that the gardens, park walks and Terrace Café (with a new picnic style menu only) have now reopened. Until the 30th September, for those visiting the Terrace Café, the grounds walks are open without an admission fee (please note: Standard admission fees for the Walled Garden and Millennium Garden apply).

The safety of our visitors and colleagues is a priority, therefore we kindly ask that all visitors reserve an arrival time online: book your arrival time here. (Garden admission tickets can be purchased separately online or on arrival). Please note the Castle and the main gates to the Estate on Roxburgh Street will remain closed until further notice. Access to the site is via the Terrace Café and gardens entrance on the B6397 only. 

Floors Castle, the largest inhabited castle in Scotland and family home of the 11th Duke of Roxburghe. Built for the 1st Duke of Roxburghe in 1721, what you see is an evolving story of a house and gardens with impressions left by succeeding generations. We welcome visitors from near and far to come and enjoy this inspiring Castle and its surroundings. From our spectacular Victorian Walled Garden with glasshouses, herbaceous borders and a formal Millennium Garden, to woodland and riverside walks and a delightful cycle trail, there is so much to discover. Families are always welcome and we actively encourage children to explore and have fun during their visit.

We are delighted to offer quality, homemade food and Scottish produce in the Courtyard Cafe, Terrace Cafe and gift shop, and are proud to stock some of the best produce that Scotland has to offer. We believe Floors Castle and Gardens has such life and charm and very much hope you enjoy your visit.
