Visiting Hearst Castle
Experience firsthand the incredible genius of our namesake, Julia Morgan, at majestic Hearst Castle in San Simeon. Designed by Ms. Morgan in 1919, Hearst Castle was originally the home of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. The stunning Revival architecture, 165 opulent rooms and sheer size of the estate are a testament to the ambition and grandeur of the man himself. Today, Hearst Castle is a National Historic Landmark.
A variety of Hearst Castle tours are offered daily, all of which include the 40-minute film "Hearst Castle - Building the Dream" presented at the Visitor Center before the tour begins. In addition to daily tours, Hearst Castle offers a number of seasonal and evenings tours throughout the year. Choose our Hearst Castle hotel to stay less than 4 miles from the Visitor Center.
Reservations are highly recommended for all tours. Details: www.hearstcastle.org
