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 Glen Eyrie Castle. Your tour guide will entertain you with stories of the Palmer family, the Glen Eyrie Estate, architecture of the castle, surrounding landscape and Colorado Springs history. Glen Eyrie is an active conference center - therefore, not all rooms in the castle may be available for viewing on all tours.
