Westover Plantation Admission for Grounds & Garden
Why We Love This
- Exquisite James River scenery and formal gardens
- Premiere example of Georgian architecture with perfect proportions
- Accessible by bicycle using the Virginia Capital Trail
Westover, one of the grandest and most beautiful of the colonial plantations, was built in the mid-eighteenth century by the Byrd family. A premier example of Georgian architecture in America, the house’s special charm lies in its elegant yet extremely simple form and perfect proportions. General admission includes access to the grounds, garden and outbuildings, not the interior of the main house.
