It's an easy walk up Fort Street to the castle. Then there's 4 floors with stairs no elevator so there's lots of walking. Beautiful castle that has been well maintained. It takes about an hour or so to go through and the docent is very knowledgeable and can answer any questions you have.

A highly recommended self guided tour. Beautifully restored rooms give a real sense of life in turn of the century Victoria's high society. Spectacular stained glass windows in almost every room.

The house is beautiful and the docents are the most informative and friendliest we have ever come across. They will spend as little or as much time as you want talking about the house, the history of the family, and their favorite items. Well worth the time and money to see this treasure from Canada's industrial rich!

It was an interesting view of the Dunsmuir family, and the uses of the house between the late 1800s and mid 1900s. It and #39;s a beautiful mansion, with intricate woodwork and sparkling stained glass. Our visit was on a very warm day, and that made it a bit uncomfortable in the house. Still, we enjoyed it!
