Candlelight Tours

Create a very special historic memory this year in Charleston, SC. Take a candlelight tour of Charleston, SC’s historic estate, Drayton Hall circa 1738.

Beautiful and moving, this eighteenth century historic house is the oldest untouched home open to the public in the United States. On select dates, Drayton Hall will be open for these reservation-only Candlelight Tours to a limited number of guests on the dates below.

Experience Drayton Hall at night with these incredibly special candlelight experiences. This is a remarkable way to understand the house and the lives which touched it – and historic Charleston – from the perspective of a preserved colonial home.

After your tour, we invite you to enjoy a warm cup of a seasonal beverage (non-alcoholic) as you stroll back toward the Visitors Center and visit The Shop at Drayton Hall.

$50 members/$55 non-members per person.
