Kelso & Floors Castle

 

Journey to Kelso, a vibrant market town in the Scottish Borders which offers so much to see and do both in the town itself and the stunning surrounding countryside.

 

After lunch we will travel to Floors Castle which is not only a Duke’s family home, but also the heart of the diverse Roxburghe Estates in a beautiful part of the Scottish Borders.

 

Visit this stunning Castle and see for yourself the collection of fine art, porcelain, newly restored tapestries, grand rooms and superb views. With woodland and riverside walks, formal and informal gardens and lots of lovely places to walk, or to sit and watch the world go by, this is a fantastic day out.

 

The gardens and grounds at Floors are a delight to explore with your family and friends. 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 with the kids or take a stroll with the dog 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.

 

Itinerary:

Morning departure from the local area we travel to Kelso in the Scottish Borders. Here you can spend the morning exploring the pretty cobbled town. .

Floors Castle is largely accessible and welcomes visitors with different access requirements, however, due to the historic nature of the Castle and its grounds, disabled access is limited in some areas.
