Mount Stewart gardens, located in County Down, Northern Ireland are part of the Neoclassical Mount Stewart estate. It was built in 1744 by the Stewart family, holders of the title, Marquess of Londonberry. Most of the gardens, however can be attributed to Edith, Lady of Londonberry, who designed them in the 1920s.
Some of the many gardens include the Shamrock Garden, Sunken Garden, Spanish Garden, and the Italian Garden. You'll see plenty of topiaries too, with such unusual shapes as dinosaurs, orangutans, and dodo birds.
The gardens are open daily from 10 AM -6 PM. Admission is 7 British pounds for adults and 3.50 British pounds for children.
