Millennium Parterre

As the name would suggest, the Millennium Parterre was installed in 2000 to commemorate the new millennium.

This lovely formal garden features the intertwining initials of the Duke and Duchess: G (Guy), V (Virginia) and R (Roxburghe). This was taken from a similar design on the Floors Castle linen made in 1900.

On the central bed, the ducal coronet is laid out with varities of euonymus. This is flanked by two sloping beds with the Latin numeral M (for the year 2000), using traditional box.

Also situated within the Millennium Parterre is a charming building known as the Queen’s House. The Queen’s House was built in 1867 especially for Queen Victoria to take afternoon tea in during her visit to Floors in August of that year.  Originally it was attached to magnificent glass houses filled with delicious fruits and vegetables. The building itself had beautiful hand-painted tiles lining the walls, wonderful stonework and huge windows to allow in as much natural light as possible. The glasshouses were removed shortly before WWII but this enchanting building and its interesting history live on.
