I have visited the Craigdarroch Castle on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed my visit.The Architecture is is amazing the woodwork inside is truly worthy of the Royals and of coarse the History that follows you through the whole visit is a great time travel in ones afternoon.Rumour has it that a ghost walks the top floor.

I absolutely loved this castle. Being Canadian, it was a true pleasure to see something worthy of “Canadian history.” There aren’t many historical venues on the West Coast so I thoroughly enjoyed this one tremendously!

Compared to the Hearst Castle in California or the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC this place is a bargain!

Adult admission was less than $15 USD which makes it less than half the cost of the others and although it is not as big as either, it is a spectacular example of late Victorian era architecture. The extensive interior woodwork is worth the price of admission on its own and the historical society that now acts as curator of the property has done an excellent job of furnishing the rooms after the original contents of the home were sold by the family after the death of family matriarch Joan Dunsmuir in 1909.

A cool step back in history. A castle so large you couldn’t sell it. The history is very interesting. It blends Europe, Canada, and the USA. This is something I would combine with a day that is not full of other activities or as a filler in an otherwise incomplete day. It is interesting and does not take long to appreciate.

I enjoyed this view of life among the super wealthy. Beautiful things and a house that is a marvel for its time.
