Self-Guided Tours at The Castle
Tours of Craigdarroch Castle are self-guided, so you can spend as much time as you want enjoying Victoria’s legendary landmark. On average, a tour of the Dunsmuir family home takes 45 minutes to an hour and there are volunteers throughout to assist you during your visit. Flash photography is allowed and we even have I-Spy Tours of The Castle for children so they will enjoy the attraction as much as you!
When you are finished take time to browse the Museum Gift Shop and relax in the Castle grounds before moving on to your next destination. If you need a taxi just ask, someone in the shop will be happy to call one for you. For further information on your visit please contact us.
