Stratford Hall, located in the historic Northern Neck, will introduce new tour options beginning July 1 for visitors to experience the historic home and surrounding landscape.
There will be docent-led tours of the Great House three times a day; 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., allowing visitors to hear stories about the recent renovations and preservation of the Great House and about the people who lived at Stratford Hall, and have ample time to stroll the newly renovated gardens, visit the beach, have a picnic, go to the Gift Shop, and take in the stunning views. A new 75-minute self-guided audio tour with 28 stops throughout the Great House and historic grounds allows for visitors to experience, at their own pace, the stories of some of Stratford’s former inhabitants, background music and ambient sounds, and actors portraying those who lived at Stratford Hall. Walk through the house and the surrounding historical areas at whatever pace you wish. The audio tour is offered daily from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Stratford Hall is also introducing a brand new American Sign Language tour, produced by Fornal Labs and translated by Purple Communications, displayed on a touch-screen device that showcases Stratford Hall’s audio tour content in ASL and with subtitles, and a map to guide the visitors to all of the 28 stops.
