Basic Information


Welcome to Hampton National Historic Site!

Hampton National Historic Site is open year round, with the exception of some federal holidays. The scenic grounds and gardens are open daily for visitors to enjoy at their own pace, even on holidays when the parking lots and visitor center may otherwise be closed. The parking lots are open from 8:30AM-5:00PM. Recreational visitors may access the park from dawn to dusk (parking outside the park when gates are closed).

Hampton NHS has resumed opening some of the outbuildings containing exhibits, and the restrooms located in the Orangery and Dove Cote (near Overseer’s House) Thursday-Sunday from 9:00AM - 4:30PM. The Visitor Center is open Thursday-Sunday 9:00AM - 4:00PM. The mansion and the Overseer’s House will remain closed (mansion tours are available). Consistent with CDC recommendations, people who are not fully vaccinated must continue to wear masks indoors and in crowded outdoor spaces.

Visitors to Hampton National Historic Site can start their visit before leaving home. Download the new NPS App which is the official app for all 420+ NPS sites. The NPS App will act as your virtual visitor center! The multimedia page on our website is a good way to become familiar with the park’s history. Virtual tours, self-guided tours, videos, and photo galleries are also found on the same page on our website.

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. Visiting Hampton National Historic Site is a great way to spend a morning, afternoon, or the entire day. We have so much to see and do that we encourage visitors to return, and return often. We recommend that you plan to spend at least 2 hours on site but you are more than welcome to stay longer.
