Visiting Hampton National Historic Site is a great way to spend a morning, afternoon, or the entire day. In fact we have so much to see and do that we encourage visitors to return, and return often.
Guided tours of the eighteenth-century mansion are available Thursday through Sunday. The scenic grounds and gardens are open daily for visitors to enjoy at their own pace. Please call ahead or refer to the park hours of operations for tour times and availability. Special programs, events, and tours are also offered so be sure to check the calendar as you plan your visit.
Even a short visit can be a memorable one! Visitors are free to explore the 62.4 acre park that is home to several state champion trees, a falling garden, dozens of historic structures, and various birds and other wildlife.
We recommend that you plan to spend at least 2 hours on site but you are more than welcome to stay longer.
