Christmas at the Castle

Christmas Tree at the Castle

During the Holiday Season, Hearst Castle presents an opportunity for visitors to travel back in time and experience the Castle as it might have been on Christmas in the 1920s or 1930s. The Grand Rooms Tour and the Evening Tour are excellent tours to see many of the decorated rooms.

Every December the staff at Hearst Castle works hard to decorate the estate for the holidays, creating a special atmosphere that is sure to get you in the holiday spirit.

Hearst Castle does not have a specific themed tour for Christmas. The main house and guest houses will be decorated for the holidays making for an impressive site.

Christmas at the Castle Assembly Room
Christmas at the Castle is an event that is not to be missed and is fun for the entire family!

During the holidays the Evening Tour program includes Living History Docents dressed in 1930s period clothing along with the holiday decorations in many of the rooms throughout the historic California Mansion. Two 18-foot Christmas trees fill the Assembly Room as Living History Docents dressed in 1930s period clothing socialize before dinner. Weekend Evening Tours are difficult to reserve, but there are also many Evening Tours available during the week in December.
