Only at Christmastime do you get a chance to see the historic houses in Fairmount Park like this! If you’re looking for a unique way to experience the holiday decorations and hospitality of these houses, look no further than our exclusive Candlelight Tour. Last year this tour was so popular it sold out in early November, so this year we will be holding two candlelight tours, on the first two Thursday evenings in December.

Guests will board a private trolley at Lloyd Hall on Boathouse Row, and visit festively decorated Laurel Hill Mansion, Woodford Mansion, and Historic Strawberry Mansion – all lit softly by candlelight, evoking the past in a unique and lovely way. Friendly and knowledgeable guides share the rich and interesting history of Fairmount Park and the life of the residents who called each of these magnificent buildings home. The tour concludes with assorted hors d’oeuvres and desserts at Historic Strawberry Mansion. This tour is one of a kind and not to be missed!

Tickets and more information can be found at:

Transportation to each house is included on a private trolley car. Pick up for each night is at Lloyd Hall (1 Boathouse Row, Philadelphia, PA 19130) at 5:30pm. Guests will return to Lloyd Hall at 8:30pm.
