Christmas at Hearst CastleWhile there are no specific Christmas tours at the Castle, Christmas at Hearst Castle is an event that is not to be missed.

Beginning Thanksgiving weekend through the end of December, the main house and guest houses are decorated just as they might have been for Christmas in the 1920s and 30s. The special atmosphere is sure to make the season bright for you and the whole family.

The Grand Rooms Tour and the Evening Tour are excellent ways to see many of the best and brightest holiday decorations during this festive time of year.
