Visit Us

Visits to Andalusia’s Big House and its gardens can take a bit of planning.  Please understand — it’s not that we’re unfriendly, it’s just that we are deeply committed to preserving this irreplaceable piece of history on the Delaware.  Once you visit, you’ll see what we mean.

Ways to visit Andalusia:

  • One is to join one of our guided house tours, and self-guided garden tours, held on Open Mondays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. from April 2nd through October 29th (excluding holidays).  The cost is $20 each.  Advance reservations are required and space is limited. Book online (pay in advance) or call 215-245-5479 to reserve your time and pay in cash at the door. Guided house tours last approximately one hour; self-guided garden tours are at your own pace. (Typically, these last for about an hour.)

  • Tours of the Big House, plus self-guided garden tours, are also available by reservation from Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $20 per person for a group of four. For fewer than four guests, the cost is $80. Due to staffing, these tours must be reserved a few days in advance.

  • Guided garden only tours are also available Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $20 per person for a group of four. For fewer than four guests, the cost is $80 and the tours must be reserved a few days in advance. The tour lasts about one-hour with extra time to enjoy the gardens on your own.

  • Combination guided house and guided garden tours are also available and last approximately two hours with extra garden time afterwards as desired. The cost is $40 per person for a group of four. For fewer than four guests, the cost is $160. These tours are more specialized and must be reserved several days in advance.

  • Another visitation option is to become a member of Andalusia, which, among many other benefits, offers special access to the grounds on select weekends during open garden days for members throughout the year.
