Nestled within the idyllic landscapes of County Down, Castle Ward stands as a testament to architectural duality and captivating history.
This remarkable 18th-century mansion, owned by the National Trust, is a true masterpiece of contrasting styles—half classical Palladian elegance and half neo-Gothic splendour.
Set amidst sprawling parkland and overlooking the tranquil waters of Strangford Lough, Castle Ward invites visitors to step back in time and immerse themselves in a world of aristocratic grandeur. As you explore the stunning interiors and meticulously maintained gardens, you'll discover the intriguing story of the Ward family and their remarkable vision.
The house and clock tower have also featured in a number of television productions, including the Antiques Roadshow, and as Winterfell in HBO's Game of Thrones.
