National Treasure


This is Hillsborough Castle, the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen in Northern Ireland.

It is possible to tour the Castle but last year I visited the gardens.




Spring just about making an appearance...

Below is Lady Alice's Temple

  7. I do love things about England. Have wanted to visit but something always comes up. The last time I had tickets 9/11 happened and I just went to Bermuda. As English as I could get.

  11. Gorgeous place and I love that gate Christine. Bet there's a lot of history there. I am slowly trying to catch up after being busy with family and friends, and also with no internet all of a sudden. Up and running again now though. Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for stopping by.
