“Great wedding venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

We were guests at a wedding at Alberton a couple of weekends ago and it was lovely. The house is beautiful and the grounds superb. It's a great venue for a romantic wedding. They invite all guests to look around the house which is great.

“Beauty in History at it's finest.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Alberton house is a very historic part of Auckland. If you love big, old houses, antique furniture, museums and nice gardens, Alberton house has all of the above. As a family we thoroughly enjoyed this attraction. The people are friendly and give any extra information about the old property. The only trouble is parking, as it is down a crowded street, so try and take buses or trains instead.

“Colonial Mansion - life upstairs and downstairs 1860s style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2011

A large colonial mansion with a real sense of life for the family and the staff in the 1860s. It seems as if they could still be living there and appear at any time. There are lovely verandahs and a garden, and you can see this must have been a very grand house in its day.

“AWESOME!!! Well worth a visit for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2011

This is a great place showcasing the history of one influential family in Auckland's history.
It show's how these pioneers of New Zealand lived with many fantastic displays and alot of the original furniture. Definitely bring your camera as there are many beautiful photo's you can take and you really feel the atmosphere of the Kerr-Taylor family that lived here for more than 100 years.
