Initially built in 1895 as a residence for Father Jean Baptist Francolon, Miramont Castle Museum represents an architectural delight with styles ranging from Byzantine to Tudor. Today, tour the museum's 42 rooms decorated in Victorian-era fashion as well as lush, manicured gardens. Along the way, keep your eyes peeled for ghosts--many claim the attraction is haunted by apparitions. Just ask the staff about some of the house's unexplained incidents!

Absolutely a must! To start, the castle is amazing. Beautiful inside and out. They offer a very cheap self guided tour through four floors, filled with beautiful art and rich history. They also have a beautiful tea room. My wife and I made reservations for the High Tea and it was absolutely exquisite. The food was so good and surprisingly very filling. They offer many different types of teas as well. They offer lunch as well but please refer to their website for all the details about tea and lunch. I would like to say that the entire staff was extremely friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the castle and tea. I would rate them five stars as well. Overall it's a great spot to check it for visitors and locals either just to tour or to have lunch and tea!
Only experienced lunch in the Queen's Parlour Room, but well worth the experience! One of the ladies we were with said this was the best tea room she's been in. The room is quite beautiful. The table set up is lovely. The teas and food were very aromatic and delightful to take in. The staff was very friendly and patient as we took awhile to figure out what to order. The garden was really joyful to walk around. Would love to go back and experience again.
