The heart of the garden offers a unique visitor experience at the refurbished Clotworthy House. Visitors can view the Garden Heritage Exhibition, where they can read about the history of the gardens and the story of the Massereene family. It provides a fantastic opportunity to learn about how the lives of the key family members intertwined with the development of Antrim town and the surrounding areas.The light-filled Oriel Gallery plays host to a range of stunning exhibitions throughout the year.With a year-round program of events and activities including talks, walks, interactive workshops, performances, and exhibitions, the gardens are just waiting to be explored.
