A beautifully maintained, loving curated national park!! Almost all of the art and artifacts are original to the Manor and the Ridgely family. My tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave the best historic site tour I've ever experienced. Be prepared to walk if you want to see the entire property. I visited all the buildings on site as well... More

If you enjoy visiting historical sites you will enjoy Hampton Mansion. I like visiting local historical sites in or near my home and this was a great one. I learned quite a bit about the early residents.

The house and grounds are very unique and interesting. We live nearby and have never visited but I am glad we read the reviews here which sparked our interest in a visit. The problem with the trip is that we had a guide who was mostly interested in promoting her black agenda as often as possible. She told us she... More

The Hampton mansion and grounds are fabulous - 63 acres of park land containing historic buildings and gardens. Visit on Thursday through Sunday to get a tour of the mansion, which holds historically correct furnishings, many original to the house.

Whenever I have family come into town, I try to take them here! The tours are free and interesting. The mansion is beautiful - and the history of the Ridgely family is an interesting perspective to the history of Baltimore. It is beautifully and historically decorated at Christmas. There are also gardens and outbuildings that you can visit.

Every time I drove past Exit 27 on 695, I would see a sign for Hampton Historic Site. I finally came to see what exactly it was one day on my own, and was pleased to find a beautiful old historic mansion just off the beaten path. The tour guide was very good and was incredibly informative. The tour is... More

Another hidden gem of the National Park Service. Our tour docent was extremely knowledgeable about the house and its history. We'll be sure to return for some of the site's special events.

Free guided tours of the mansion are available. Each tour accommodates up to 15 people and lasts approximately one hour. There's no booking ahead: first come first served. Our guide was well prepared and the tour was both informative and entertaining. The surrounding property (orangery, gardens, cemetery, stables, ice pit, farm, dairy lab, ...) can be visited without guide.
