Today in 1603: Elizabeth I dies.
The last of the Tudor monarchs, Elizabeth I has become a national icon and her reign is remembered for the defeat of the Spanish Armada and for a flowering of art and literature.
After Elizabeth I passed, James VI of Scotland took the throne and began the Stuart dynasty.

We are delighted to welcome Hillsborough Castle, the latest property in our care, to Facebook!
Hillsborough Castle was built in the 1770s by Wills Hill, first Marquis of Downshire. The Georgian house sits at the heart of Hillsborough village near Belfast and since 1925 has served as the official royal residence in Northern Ireland. It is surrounded by 96 acres of beautiful gardens and the interior of the house features a selection of elegant state rooms, including the Throne Room and Drawing Room.
Tours of the house are open from today. Find out more about Hillsborough Castle on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/hillsboroughcastle

There are plenty of activities for all the family this Easter at Hillsborough Castle. Explore the beautiful grounds using Lady Alice's paper trail, join other budding builders to construct your very own castle, or take a seat in the stunning State Drawing Room for interactive storytelling.

My greatest hope is that this iconic art display has highlighted the death and destruction of war.  That children and young people will feel the futility of violence and war.  That it will give them the will to work towards a World of Peace and Friendship.  We adults seem to have failed miserable so far.
