Floors Castle Group Tours

Floors Castle, approximately one hour's drive from Edinburgh and Newcastle, is a fascinating place.  We welcome groups and private tours.

Floors Castle is a good option for a group visit either with a guided tour or independent entry at their leisure. Feel free to ask us about a tailormade tour on a topic for a group, or if there is something about the Estate in which you are particularly interested.

We offer a range of tours including:

Garden Tours - for garden and plant lovers

Arts & Tapestry Tours - learn more about the magnificent collection of art, restored tapestries and porcelain.

History of Floors Castle Tours - built for the 1st Duke of Roxburghe and now family home to the 10th.

If you would like to learn more about further specialist tours around our estate, we would be delighted to tell you some options including our stud or bio-mass tour.

We offer a discounted rate for all groups and tours of 10 or more.
