Guided Tours of Blithewold
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
April 13 – October 13
11:30 am

Our experienced tour guides will tell the story of the Van Wickle/McKee family, the original owners of this beautiful seaside garden estate. Visitors experience breathtaking views of Narragansett Bay and see the Mansion decorated with original furnishings just as it was when the family lived here. The guided tour continues through the grounds where magnificent trees and a variety of colorful gardens demonstrate Blithewold’s prominence in horticulture.

This tour concludes with a Q & A—complete with iced tea—served on Blithewold’s North West Porch.

$6 per person in addition to regular admission.
Admission is included in the price when you register.
Guests are welcome to explore the Mansion and grounds after the tour.
Tours are a maximum of 15 people.


Heat Advisory – Updated 7/19/19

Sunday’s RealFeel temperature is forecast to be 108 degrees. Our main concern is your comfort and safety. When temperatures reach 100 degrees or higher, we adjust our guided tours accordingly. Instead of touring both the house and the grounds, we offer an expanded version of our house tour and forgo the tour of the grounds.

Your guide will be happy to talk to you about our gardens and grounds during the Q and A part of your tour while you sip a cool drink on Blithewold’s pleasant covered porch!

Best,
Allan Millora, Group Tour Coordinator
