This is a lovely, little known place for local history. Tai Fu Tai Mansion is the house of a wealthy member of the Man clan, one of the Five Great Clans of the New Territories. It is now quite well restored to its former glory and glamour although detailed illustration is lacking. The place is a unique bland of traditional southern Chinese and Rococo architecture. While the layout is in line with major mansions in Guangdong, the delicate glasses, paintings and ornaments are somehow reminiscent of the Alhambra. The security guard is passionate to share the anecdotes in local language. Bus 76K conveniently connects Tai Fu Tai Mansion with Sheung Shui and Yuen Long.

Took the kids for an explore. We drove, which made it easy for us to get to as there are a couple of car parks off the main road. The grounds themselves are very interesting - if you speak Cantonese, the lady taking us around is highly informative, telling us about the wharf, the Treasury, the pig sty, the kitchen and toilets and history of the family. There's no labelling so if you don't speak the language, make sure you get a leaflet when you walk into the house, and/or do some research before you get there. Our kids are young but enjoyed hearing the stories and trying to imagine how people used to live there, and they loved the open space to run around. We also wandered through the village to the Ancestral Hall, which was nice - a great snack stall had delicious cheong fun on the way back, which kept the kids going to lunch time. We'll take visitors next time we have some - it's great to show people New Territories life outside HK Island

Set off from a road, the manorial house has extensive (for Hong Kong) grounds and a lake.

Fascinating to look at the various rooms that were used, the peanut oil press and learn some of the history behind the lord who lived here with his two wives and their children.

Nestle in New Territories in a small village of San Tin close to Sheung Shui, one can visit the ancestral hall. It is well preserved, renovated last 1988 and gives a good insight on the history of Hong Kong at that time. Easy to reach by bus 76K from Sheung Shui or . green mini bus. A perfect excuse for an outing. Another highlight, is the nearby Hong Kong coffeeshop, serving good a good spread of local delicacies

Our guide brought this place to life describing how a high ranking government official lived and entertained guests. Others did not live so well!
