Hillsborough Castle is a golden-orange ashlar, 18th century mansion house built in the 1770s by Wills Hill, first Marquis of Downshire. The building was remodelled in the mid- 19th century and early 20th century to its present form. The present state entrance is formed by a single storey shallow portico of 4 pairs of coupled ionic columns. The castle was the principal seat of the Marquis of Downshire for over 200 years before passing into public ownership in 1922 when it became home to the governors of Northern Ireland. Now the residence for the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, it is a ‘working’ building, serving as the venue for official royal and state functions.
