Our Exclusive Middleton Place Excursion

All tours depart from the Charleston Visitors Center at 375 Meeting St.

Two of America’s Founding Fathers called Middleton Place home: Henry Middleton, a president of the First Continental Congress, and his son Arthur Middleton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Now a National Historic Landmark, it is home to 65 acres of America’s oldest landscaped Gardens; a House Museum filled with Middleton family possessions; Plantation Stableyards with heritage breeds and artisans demonstrating the skills needed to maintain an 18th and 19th century rice plantation; and Eliza’s House, a freedman’s dwelling that serves as the centerpiece of Middleton Place’s interpretation of the lives and legacy of the enslaved people who built and maintained the property. Your tour includes a delicious lunch of traditional Low Country cuisine.

This tour has a significant cost savings compared with arranging the components separately.

Fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed this informative and fun tour. The ride out to the plantation provided the background knowledge needed to really appreciate the history of Middleton. The house tour guide was fabulous and the lunch was exceptional! The grounds are breathtaking- even saw a gator in the river. It really takes you back to where you feel the presence of those who walked and lived on the grounds. A must when you visit and worth every penny.
