Holiday Tour at the Newport Mansions




Saturday, December 1


The glitter of gold and the sparkle of silver will dazzle all as we tour three magnificent mansions decked out in Yuletide finery. Music, tours, and spectacular decorations highlight the celebration of Christmas at the Newport Mansions. Join us for a day of glamour as we tour The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House - three National Historic Landmarks and icons of the Gilded Age in America.


These mansions are filled with thousands of poinsettias, fresh flowers, evergreens and wreaths. More than 20 decorated Christmas trees reflecting individual room decor anchor many of the magnificent spaces. Dining tables set with period silver and china complete the elegant setting. The windows of each mansion are lit with individual white candles, in keeping with the colonial tradition. A working garden scale model of the Vanderbilt family’s New York Central Railroad will be on display in the second floor loggia of The Breakers, traveling through a village made up of gingerbread replicas of some of the Newport Mansions, created by local pastry chefs.


In between tours, we will enjoy a lovely luncheon at La Forge Restaurant. The 1:00pm group luncheon menu offers a salad, your choice of entree as well as dessert. Please bring a small snack to enjoy between the first two morning tours. We will travel by bus to and from Newport, as well as in between the mansions and restaurant. Please note all gratuities are included in the fee.

We invite you to create memories with your family and friends by joining us for a Holiday Tour at the Newport Mansions this season.
