During the Fall Festival of Houses and Gardens visitors are invited to explore Beaufort from a rare vantage point: a selection of private homes, gardens, and plantations normally not open to the public welcome visitors inside. The houses represent three centuries of Beaufort architecture for which the city is justly famous. These self-paced walking tours offered a distinctive opportunity to observe how contemporary lifestyles are lived within the framework of our unmatched architectural heritage.
