Bangor Castle

This impressive building was built for the Hon Robert Edward Ward and his family in 1852. It is presently the headquarters of Ards and North Down Borough Council who use the mansions spectacular grand salon as the council chamber. The building is situated in the grounds of Castle Park alongside North Down Museum and is just a short walk from Bangor Castle Walled Garden.

CS Lewis visited North Down on many occasions throughout his life and regularly returned to the area. He enjoyed the beautiful view over Belfast Lough from the grounds of Bangor Castle. As Lewis himself once said "Heaven is Oxford lifted and placed in the middle of County Down".

In 1998, as part of the CS Lewis Centenary Celebration, a bench was unveiled to let others appreciate the view so enjoyed by Lewis.
