Event Description

For those wishing to experience more of the Mansion or for repeat visitors, take advantage of our Backstairs Tour. Highlights include climbing to the fifth-floor observation tower with panoramic views of the Hudson River and Manhattan. Then, descend the backstairs to view the butler’s suite and the extensive basement kitchen rooms. Exit through the servants’ dining room, pass through the herb garden, and visit the c.1911 Laundry Building complete with original fixtures. This tour lasts one and a half hours and because of its physical demands, it is not recommended for individuals with limited mobility or children under 12. This tour requires ascending 79 steps up to the tower and 99 steps down to the basement,  no person (including children and infants) may be lifted or carried throughout the tour.

As New York State continues to eliminate pandemic-related restrictions, Lyndhurst requests that all visitors continue to wear masks indoors during this transition period as a courtesy to fellow visitors and staff. We will continue to evaluate these policies and make changes in the future, as appropriate.

Please present printed tour tickets or have them available on your smartphone to show  Welcome Center staff when checking in for your tour.

All visitors must have a pre-purchased ticket to enter the Mansion. A limited number of tickets are available for each tour and tickets do sell out. Those who wish to visit the estate grounds are required to purchase a Daily Grounds Pass. All ticket purchases are non-refundable.

For everyone’s safety, Lyndhurst reserves the right to deny or revoke the admission of any visitor who refuses to comply with these guidelines. As in any public setting, we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19. By visiting Lyndhurst, you voluntarily assume such risks.
