Available in the spring and fall, the Hearst Castle Evening Tour allows you to view this historic California mansion in the twilight hours—just as Mr. Hearst’s own guests did in the 1930s. Wind your way through House A (Casa del Mar), Casa Grande’s social rooms, guest accommodations, the Main Library and Mr. Hearst’s own private Gothic Suite. Docents dressed in 1930s period attire complete the experience, bringing the Castle to life once again.
The Evening Tour is 1 hour and 40 minutes long and consists of approximately 303 stairs, both up and down, and a 3/4-mile route to walk. For those who have difficulty walking or standing for extensive lengths of time, we recommend the Accessibly Designed Evening Tour which is also wheelchair accessible.
