Lisburn Castle Gardens is a beautiful green space in the city centre. It is on the site of Lisburn Castle, a 17th-century manor house built by the Conway family. The current building was built in the 1770s by Wills Hill, the first Marquis of Downshire. Other attractions in Lisburn include the Riverside Theatre and the Linen Museum.
Under five miles south of Lisburn’s city centre is the pretty village of Hillsborough. Situated in the heart of County Down, much of the village features elegant Georgian properties.
