Neo-classical house and celebrated gardens
Mount Stewart is one of the most inspiring and unusual gardens in the National Trust's ownership.
The garden reflects a rich tapestry of design and great planting artistry that was the hallmark of Edith, Lady Londonderry. The mild climate of Strangford Lough allows astonishing levels of planting experimentation. The formal areas exude a strong Mediterranean feel and resemble an Italian villa landscape; the wooded areas support a range of plants from all corners of the world, ensuring something to see whatever the season.
We are currently delivering a major project at Mount Stewart. This includes important repairs and improvements to the structure and services of the house.
Why not come along and see our exciting project in action by taking a house tour? A special restoration tour now replaces the house tour due to the ongoing conservation. Guided tours are available until Easter, after Easter you can enjoy experiencing the rooms at your leisure were an experienced house guide will be in each room to tell you more about the current work going on in the house.
