Add To Plan

Travel down oak-canopied roads to marvelous Drayton Hall, considered the finest Georgian Palladian Plantation house in the south and a National Historic Landmark.

Traveling by coach from the pier, it's a narrated thirty-minute drive to this esteemed property. Construction began in 1738 and in the ensuing years, the house has withstood a great many things, including; being used by both British and Colonial forces during the Revolution, the rise and fall of plantation society, surviving devastating natural disasters, and having remained intact in the face of modernization. The home's amazing architecture and craftsmanship tell the story of a family and its community over two centuries.

Upon arrival at Drayton Hall, one of Drayton Hall's senior docents will take you on a ninety-minute guided tour through this marvelous house. During this very special Connoisseur tour, your expert interpreter will bring this magnificent house to life with historical photographs and drawings that are not a part of the regular house tour.

Following your guided tour, you will have a bit of free time to browse in the gift shop before it's time to rejoin your coach and travel back to the ship.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of moderate walking/standing plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time. There will be stairs to negotiate to reach the upper floors. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns who are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability.
