Candlelight Tour of Hammond Castle and Afternoon Tea at the Pleasant Street Tea Co Register View Cart

Step back into time with us as we go on a tour of a true European Castle, the Hammond Castle in Gloucester, MA. We will experience it as John Hays Hammond and his wife experienced it, via the simplicity of candlelight. 

Hammond Castle was built in the late 1920's by scientist, inventor, and art connoisseur, John Hays Hammond, Jr. Their website,, describes it this way; "Sitting high on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the castle brings together a unique combination of art, architectural elements and culture, backstopped by many innovative technological applications, yet unknown and unseen by the visitor." 

In true European fashion, we will be stopping on the way for Afternoon Tea and an early dinner at the Pleasant Street Tea Co. in Gloucester. A large teapot of tea to share is included in the price below, food is at your own expense. You can learn more about them here:
