Fees and Hours


Saturday–Sunday, 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

Join us for a guided walk departing Saturdays and Sundays from the Read House steps. Tours begin with a look inside a few of our most iconic rooms and continue with an easy stroll along the town's storied cobblestone streets. You'll discover how the Read House and its inhabitants over the years were at the center of tastemaking, preservation, and the famously historic vibes of the New Castle we see today.

Tour sizes are limited. Advance tickets strongly recommended.

Thursday–Sunday, 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

The gardens are open for you to enjoy at your own pace, free of charge.
