Castle Tours

Castle Tours

What is the story behind this magnificent estate? Immerse yourself in the history of Glen Eyrie, from General Palmer to The Navigators, with a guided castle tour.

Our tour is approximately 90 minutes in length. It includes a brief historical video and a guided tour through the Carriage House and the first and second floors of the Glen Eyrie Castle. Your tour guide will entertain you with stories of the Palmer family, the Glen Eyrie Estate, the architecture of the castle, surrounding landscape and Colorado Springs history.

Glen Eyrie is an active conference center; therefore, on any particular tour, certain rooms in the castle may not be available for viewing. Guest rooms are regularly in use and will not be available to be seen during any tour.
