Happy Monday Folks! Today we are giving away 4 regular admission passes to Craigdarroch Castle!!
Craigdarroch was built between 1887-1890 for Robert Dunsmuir, a Scottish immigrant who made his fortune from Vancouver Island coal. This legendary Victorian mansion, built on a hill overlooking the City of Victoria announced to the world that Robert Dunsmuir was the richest and most important man in Western Canada.
He died in 1889 leaving his entire estate to his wife Joan who lived in the Castle until her death in 1908. The immense fortune of the Dunsmuir family is reflected in the four floors of exquisite stained glass windows, intricate woodwork and fabulous Victorian era Furnishings. Craigdarroch Castle is a National Historic Site and is open to the public as a historic house museum. All admissions fund the restoration, preservation and conservation of the Castle.
If you haven't been you really have to go! I was fortunate enough to have a private tour of the facility this summer. So many amazing and wonderful rooms, interesting items, and gorgeous little nooks and crannies.
My Mom's favourite time to visit in the winter when it's all decorated for Christmas. She says it's truly at it's best when it looks festive :) So... if you win these tickets you can make this part of your holiday festivities this year if you like :) The tickets are good for 4 people, and cannot be combined with other offers and are not valid for special events.
