Groups & Private Tours
Lyndhurst offers guided tours of the mansion and grounds year-round for groups of ten or more of all ages, subject to availability. Tours include a Classic Mansion Tour perfect for first-time visitors. This one hour guided tour visits two floors of the mansion and requires the ability to navigate stairs and a short, uphill walk. A comprehensive one-and-a-half hour tour encompassing all six floors of the mansion, from the observation tower to the basement kitchen is an alternative for those capable of climbing five flights of stairs. Garden Clubs and outdoor adventure groups may choose Landscape tours. All tours begin in the Welcome Center where a 20-minute introductory video is shown. Public restrooms and the Lyndhurst gift shop are also located in the Welcome Center. In planning your visit, we recommend allowing 90 minutes on our property for the Classic Mansion Tour and more for Backstairs or Landscape tours.

Private tours for groups under ten guests are a popular option for those interested in a customized experience providing group privacy or tours catered to specific personal interests. Lyndhurst also welcomes those wishing to create memories on special occasions, such as marriage proposals. Private tours may be scheduled at any time including times the property is otherwise closed to the public, based on availability.
