Daily guided tours resume May 18 to September 2 (subject to change)

Experience the tranquility of the Hatley Park estate and enjoy a guided walking tour that will take you on a one-hour journey.

Our knowledgeable guides will share the 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 includes access to the first floor of Hatley Castle and the museum in the lower level.

Please note: Access to Hatley Castle is only available with the guided tour. To protect the gardens, dogs are not permitted in the gated areas.
