Government House information
Parts of this erstwhile official residence of the chief executive of Hong Kong, and previously the colonial governors, date back to 1855. Other features were added by the Japanese, who used it as military headquarters during the occupation of Hong Kong in WWII. It’s open to the public three or four times a year, notably one Sunday in March, when the azaleas in the gardens are in full bloom.
