British Residency Tours

The famed British Residency is an ideal place for history-loving travelers who want to experience the haunting beauty of historic ruins. Located in the heart of Lucknow, this former home of a British war general was built in the late 1700s. Travelers can wander the crumbling structures tucked amid lush greenery and explore the decrepit walls destroyed by cannon fire. A nearby cemetery is the final resting place of some 2,000 people who died during India’s war for independence. While travelers will certainly learn much about the history of this site while exploring the grounds on their own, an evening light show brings the British Residency’s history to life each night and it not to be missed.

Practical Info

The residency is located at Mahatma Gandhi Marg, Deep Manak Nagar, in Quaiserbagh, Lucknow. It is open daily from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. It is within easy walking distance of Shaheed Smarak, Tehri Kothi and several other local points of interest.
