Floors Castle

Roxburghe Estates Office, Kelso, Scottish Borders, TD5 7SF

Floors Castle built by leading architect William Adam in 1721, Floors Castle is Scotland’s largest inhabited castle and home to the 10th Duke of Roxburghe.
An architectural masterpiece inside and out, the Castle houses a
marvellous collection of fine art and porcelain for you to enjoy,
including paintings by Matisse and our famous Belgian tapestries. The
grand rooms offer superb views over the River Tweed and Cheviot Hills as far as the eye can see.
Keep the kids entertained with our adventure playground in our very own secret garden and enjoy hours of fun with our kids activities, quizzes and lots of exciting places to explore.

We pride ourselves on our delicious homemade food. All of our dishes are created in the Castle kitchen using only the finest local produce.
The Terrace Café, which overlooks our Walled Garden, is open all year round. It offers sumptuous seasonal menus,
delicious Sunday Brunch and a fun Children’s Menu.
You can also pick up a Castle-made freezer dish
to take home.
The Courtyard Café, nestled between the Castle and the woodland car
park, is open seasonally from May to September.
Both restaurants offer alfresco dining and are perfect for lunch
or Afternoon Tea.

Whether you’re looking to take home a reminder of a special day
at Floors Castle with some of our Estate produce, or a stylish
keepsake from our range of giftware, you can be sure not to
be disappointed. The Castle gift shop stocks a range of souvenirs,
gifts, children’s books and toys. The Castle Kitchen Shop and Deli
within the Terrace Café also offers lots of tasty treats, including the
Duchess’s favourite marmalade, Floors Honey, produced on the
Estate, and our award-winning shortbread. It also houses a
wonderful selection of kitchenware. You can choose
from a wide range of gifts, or create your own bespoke
Scottish hamper.

The Ten Best Scottish Fine Art Collections by Ian Sclater

"Floors Castle owes much of its attraction for art-lovers to the American heiress Mary Goelet, who married the 8th Duke of Roxburghe in 1903 and brought her outstanding collection of fine art with her. It includes Gobelin tapestries, works by Matisse and Bonnard and a commode which the visiting director of the Louvre recognised as the twin of one in his museum."
