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.


The Millennium Garden makes a perfect venue for a wedding and is available for hire from April to October.  Please see our wedding pages for further information.

This lovely formal garden features the intertwining initials of the Duke and Duchess: G (Guy), V (Virginia) and R (Roxburghe). This was taken from a similar design on the Floors Castle linen made in 1900.

On the central bed, the ducal coronet is laid out with varieties of euonymus. This is flanked by two sloping beds with the Latin numeral M (for the year 2000), using traditional box.

Also situated within the Millennium Parterre is a charming building known as the Queen’s House. The Queen’s House was built in 1867 especially for Queen Victoria to take afternoon tea in during her visit to Floors in August of that year.  Originally it was attached to magnificent glass houses filled with delicious fruits and vegetables. The building itself had beautiful hand-painted tiles lining the walls, wonderful stonework and huge windows to allow in as much natural light as possible. The glasshouses were removed shortly before WWII but this enchanting building and its interesting history live on.

Queen’s House now taking private bookings, call 01573 223333 to enquire.

Available to hire as part of our Garden Weddings package.
