Enjoy a guided walk around Castlewellan Arboretum and Annesley Garden which date from the 1750's and were created by William Annesley. The original garden consisted a kitchen garden for fruit and vegetables and a large orchard. In the 1850's the 4th earl, William Richard Annesley transformed the orchard into an arboretum, laying out new paths, steps, fountain and glasshouses. After the 4th earls death in 1874 the estate passed to his bother Hugh who continued with the tree collection creating one of the best gardens in the country. Today we have a spectacular heritage arboretum with many champion trees in this special place.
There is ongoing restoration of the Victorian glasshouses with disabled toilets provided. The garden also has a double herbaceous border which is 350 feet long.
Walk begins at 2pm.
