Home of the Stewart family on the shores of Strangford Lough, Mount Stewart has welcomed and delighted visitors for over two centuries. Family members have been prominent on the national and international stage, most notably Viscount Castlereagh who was the greatest British diplomat of the 19th century. Many of the objects in the house today have a fascinating story woven through their past, such as the desk at which the treaties agreed at the Congress of Vienna in 1815 were signed.

Famous for their hospitality, the Stewart family welcomed kings, queens, prime ministers and statesmen, but it is for the beautiful gardens created by Edith, Marchioness of Londonderry that the house is best-known today. The themed gardens are planted with the fruits of plant-hunting expeditions by such eminent travellers as George Forrest and Frank Kingdon-Ward.
