My sisters and I treated our mom to the queen's tea for Christmas and it was such a fabulous experience. The service was impeccable and every piece of food and sip of tea was delicious. This was an expensive outing but very much a treat and worth the money. They even had fancy hats for us to wear while we... More

We took two kiddies, 8&10, both of whom were reluctant to go to a museum given their Christmas stuff. We all loved the trip. We were greeted by the loveliest woman who engaged the children right on. The castle is beautiful. If you are in the area, this is a definite stop. I read the book "Ghost of Miramont Castle"... More

As a kid, I remembered Miramont fondly. As an adult, I was less impressed the few times I've been. The building is amazing, but there's just so much that you CAN'T see anymore. For some reason, I always leave hungry and the "Tea Room" is unsatisfying.

I read the book the Ghost of Miramont Castle and then I had the opportunity to visit the castle. It was so fun and interesting to see the book come to life. Read the book and then visit. It is amazing how well detailed the book is and how you can just imagine all the characters. It is must if... More

After reading the feedback on my July review of this attraction I decided to give it another try and, frankly, I am very glad that I did! I will preface my comments by saying that yes, although it is not apparent to the first time visitor it is important [in any weather I might add] that you drop your guests... More

This very unique castle provided a wonderful Saturday afternoon entertainment to us. It included a scavenger hunt for my granddaughters, which enhanced the presentation and provided extra historical reference. I would highly recommend spending an afternoon at the Castle and an opportunity to enjoy tea.

This is hidden one block off of main street, although there is a sign. The self-guided tour for the restored mansion is easy to follow and very informative. In addition to information about the castle, there is also a small fire museum, a small section on the final Nurnberg trial and a few other interesting collections. The castle also offers... More
