Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, the Banqueting House, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. We help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society in some of the greatest palaces ever built.

Hillsborough Castle is a working Royal Residence, the base for the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and a great place for the public to visit. In an exciting new development the operation of the Castle has been passed from the Northern Ireland Office to Historic Royal Palaces (HRP). Hillsborough Castle will continue to act as a Royal Residence but there will be considerable investment to increase public access, improve the visitor experience significantly and tell the stories of its fascinating history and glorious gardens. An essential part of this major development is the recruitment of a high calibre and highly professional team to transform Hillsborough Castle into a ‘must see’ destination.

This is a really exciting time to join us. You will be joining us at the start of our journey to transform Hillsborough Castle’s visitor offer in April 2019.
