This excursion will operate by coach and on foot. Due to the popularity of the Newport mansions, you may experience some queuing. Highlights of the tour may operate in reverse order. Photography is permitted inside the mansions, but flash, selfie sticks, tripods and stairway photography are prohibited. Guests are advised that there are some steps and stairs to negotiate during this tour. At the Elms there is a short walk from the parking area to the mansion house. Internal guiding may be done in person by a guide or audiotape; on some occasions visits are self-guided.
