Book A Group for the"Christmas Spectacular!"
Below is our old Group Booking Procedure. We hope to implement A new self service system involving credit cards in May. If you would like us to hold a specific tour time and date please submit the group booking form at the bottom of the page and we will pencil you in. Deposits will not be due until June 1st, after regular confirmations or requests to book on our new system are sent in May.
Group booking Info
To book a group simply click the Group Booking form below, submit and send in your deposit. 30 days out you will email us your final count and make your final payment. Tours will operate at 10:30, 1:30 and 5:00 daily. Bookings of 13 or more are considered a group and require a reservation deposit. You must indicate maximum number of guest reservations you would like to "hold" at the time of booking. Additions are not guaranteed. (Reservations for 1-12 are done on our self-booking page.)
Space is limited. Consider this like booking a theater show. We can accept up to 72 reservations per tour time, subject to availability. (Max can reach 104 if on buses.)
Visitors enter in divided guided groups with 18-24 (26 if requested) people each and enter 7-9 minutes apart.
Buses must arrive 30 minutes before tour time and have entry priority. Non bus groups need to arrive 25 minutes before tour time and complete groups also have entry priority. This is not a private group tour and tours start on time. If your group arrives late it will disrupt up our entire tour system. Your group might be pushed to go last and that might disrupt your day's timetable.
We are located in a quiet neighborhood. Street parking for buses is always available just outside the Mansion gates on the street.
Please note that steps are involved and there are no elevators or ramps. Free parking for cars is available on the estate, on the street or in the neighborhood at the church.
Limited restrooms are available but not for large groups all at once. Please plan a restroom visit before arrival. We can offer suggestions.
