My friend and I went on a tour of the Bellamy Mansion while we were visiting for Wilmington. The tour is an 1.5 and goes through the entire house. Our tour guide, Beth, made the tour interesting and funny. I would encourage everyone visiting Wilmington to visit the Bellamy Mansion!

Our visit to this great mansion was a highlight of our day in this beautiful downtown. Our tour guide was awesome telling the group about the fabulous history of this mansion. IT was worth every dollar to help maintain this icon.

I went with one of my friends who is a huge history nerd. He seemed to enjoy looking around and learning about the house, but honestly I was a bit unnerved at the fact that someone was getting married outside of the slave quarters (they were setting up chairs outside for a reception). Nonetheless, it's always nice to see classic... More

Loved it. A real Jewell. I liked all the history and the enthusiastic, knowledgeable tour guides. It was a great restoration.

Lavish in it's day, it lately nearly fell apart through neglect until a group of concerned Wilmingtonian's turned it into the beautiful building that it is today. Some of the furniture is original, but most is genuine period furniture. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and was in no hurry to move you along. There were lots of questions and he... More

This was my first visit to this festival. There were too many people and could not even see the Mansion for all the people. I will not go again unless they move or change the venue.I felt like all the steps were very unsafe for a wine event.

Very different from the many plantation homes I've visited, this urban antebellum home is rio with history and you can almost see the lavish dinner parties and daily household activities. The staff is super accommodating and helpful and a wealth of knowledge.

Bellamy Mansion preserves that part of the Old South that needs to be remembered. Was not able to see the uppermost floor at the time of my visit due to renovations being done at that time.
