Our tour guide was a wealth of information and our tiny tour group ended up getting almost a two hour tour in addition to the short film beforehand. He was full of interesting stories and facts about the house and it's occupants over the years. The sheer size of Bellamy was impressive but personally the house as a whole is... More

Amazing architecture and restoration. The magnolias are magnificent! Knowledgeable tour guides. The hour tour, at no extra cost, turned into 1 1/2 hours. A must see!

Beautiful outdoor area for a wedding! The grounds were very well kept and provided a great backdrop for pictures.

James, our tour guide, was amazing. He did a great job. He was extremely animated and really showed that he had an interest in sharing the history of the mansion. The price was great. There were no hidden fees. I liked that you were able to revisit the home and the slave quarters after the official tour was over to... More

When someone uses the term "living history" the must mean this place. It is a beautiful home and to learn that it was built before the civil war was amazing. The property has lush landscaping & one of the few preserved urban slave quarters in the US.

Always a very impressive place, but just a little extra special at the Christmas holidays! They do a beautiful job of showcasing this wonderful place.

The mansion was spectacular and we got a nice glimpse of what life might have been like for that family. However, the film and the outdoor guide and the indoor guide all told the same story. The tour was to be an hour . We left after 90 minutes when there was no end in sight. We went up to... More

We toured the Bellamy Mansion this afternoon. Really enjoyed the tour and the history of the Bellamy Family as related to the Civil War Era. The Mansion had some unique features and the tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Very interesting to see the slave quarters .We enjoyed the tour very much.

Upon arrival in Wilmington we had planned to visit The Bellamy House, we were not disappointed. Right from the start we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The short history film prior to our tour was very informative. During our tour we immediately got the feeling of how it might be to live during the civil war time period. Our tour guide... More
