Majestic. Magnificent. Memorable

Experience the tranquility of the Hatley Park estate and enjoy a Guided Walking Estate Tour that will take you on a 1-hour journey to learn about the significant history of the Indigenous lands, Dunsmuir family, Royal Roads Military College and Royal Roads University.  Unlike other museums you may have visited, Hatley Castle is a ‘living building’ and is occupied by Royal Roads University administration offices, classes and events.  Our guided tour experience will include access to the first floor of Hatley Castle, the lower level museum, and the surrounding gardens.  Please note, access to Hatley Castle is only available via a guided tour. To protect our gardens, we do not permit dogs in the gated garden areas.


Guided walking estate tours are offered seasonally April - September.  We look forward to welcoming you at that time.
