Twilight Tours at Boscobel

With the mansion lit by candlelight, decorated for 19th-century holidays, and resonating with live music, Twilight Tours offer an especially beautiful seasonal experience. At the end of the house tour, guests may visit the Gallery to see an exhibit of lenticular images of Boscobel before and after renovation. After visiting the house and partaking in a cup of mulled cider or hot chocolate, guests are invited to go outdoors and stroll among twinkling lights in the Apple Orchard, Formal Garden, and Maple Lane before stopping into a delightful new Winter Garden full of festive lights and fabulous floral design. Enjoy Boscobel at its holiday best!
