Falkland Palace and Garden welcomes over 44,000 visitors every year and there’s something here for everyone, from the Palace with a working Chapel Royal, apartments for kings and queens, stunning gardens, an orchard and the oldest tennis court in the country.
Falkland Palace, one of Scotland’s finest Renaissance buildings, is set within approximately nine acres of grounds which include ornamental gardens, a glasshouse, an orchard and woodland. The main ornamental garden was designed by renowned garden designer, Percy Cane, in the mid-20th century. Our volunteer garden assistants help our small team of gardeners look after all aspects of these large gardens, maintaining them to the highest standard possible for the enjoyment of our visitors
• General garden maintenance including weeding, mulching, planting, leaf clearing, edging, cutting back, pruning and other regular, seasonal gardening tasks
• Occasional involvement in special projects and events, should this be of interest
• Being welcoming to visitors and helping them to enjoy their visit to the gardens
• Ensuring the people working at and visiting the property remain safe at all times
