Tour Craigdarrock Castle, then have lunch at the Carriage House pub

If you like history and architecture this event is for you.  Craigdarroch Castle is now decorated for Christmas to help get into the Christmas spirit.  The self-guided tour takes approximately 1 hour.  There are very knowledgeable volunteers to add to the details of the family and castle.  Be warned, there are 87 steps to the top; easily done strolling from floor to floor. Admission is $13.75 for adults and $12.75 for seniors. If we get a group of 15 or more, the group rate is $10.65.

After the tour, we can convene at Christy's Carriage House pub at 1739 Fort Street (just a few blocks down Fort St. from the castle) for lunch.

    I see that we now have 18 people signed up - great! Unfortunately the group rate only applies if we make one payment for the whole group. People will be paying individually so that rate doesn't apply to us.
