Gardens and Grounds

Beautiful landscapes within the Castle grounds

The gardens and grounds at Floors are a delight to explore. Combining one of the finest Victorian kitchen gardens in the spectacular Walled Garden with the formal Millennium Garden, the gardens at Floors are a showpiece of seasonal interest and inspired new creations.


Enjoy the frenzy of colour in the breath-taking herbaceous borders, explore the glasshouses bursting with soft fruit or take time to stroll through the Millennium garden featuring a French-style parterre and also a charming summerhouse known as Queen’s House after Queen Victoria’s visit in 1867.

Millennium Garden

This lovely formal garden with its French-style parterre was created to commemorate the new millennium and features the intertwining initials of the present Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe. The roman numerals MM in box hedging signify the year 2000 and flank the ducal coronet. On the upper terrace are varieties of heritage apple trees trained up circular frames.

Star Plantation

This beautiful woodland garden between Floors Castle and the Millennium Garden is a joy to explore with its lovely mix of mature hardwood trees, open glades and woodland shrubs. The star plantation takes its name from the grass avenues radiating outwards from a central lime tree which is a delightful wrought iron seat.
