This was my 3rd visit and all at different times of the year. There is plenty of free parking at the attraction. Upon getting your timed entry ticket make sure you have enough time to see the movie in the visitors area before getting the free shuttle to the house and gardens. The film is about 20 mins but gives you a good insight into the man himself. Also on this level there is a very good cafe with a wider choice and reasonable prices and the store. The store is quite large with some excellent choices - the strawberry butter is divine.
Once you get the shuttle to the house you have a timed ticket. The house is amazing. This time we went during the snow and it was just a small tour group so I felt we had more of the guides knowledge and got more insight into some of the artefacts. She really knew her stuff.
Underneath the house you can see the stables, kitchens, accommodations for the slaves etc.
There is, during certain times of the year a guided tour of Mulberry Row, where the slaves lived and worked. There is also a small store here with a deck at the back with the most stunning views. In better weather you can walk the row, the vegetable gardens and on to the grave site. There is a forest trail back to the visitor center. In this weather the shuttle will drop you there on the way back to the visitor center and you can just get back on the next one having seen the graveyard.
