Gorgeous garden and make you feel like you are in the Secret Garden. Unfortunately, the fee to be pay to tour through.

I love this place I have been coming here since I was a little girl it's very educational and also very peaceful with the garden overlooking the Delaware River it's very nice for a family and just a walk-away from Battery Park where you can walk the trail and have your kids play on the playground

Was here for a wedding. Great Place.

The house tour gave a lot of insight into life in the 1700 and 1800's. My one complaint is that the decor seemed jumbled- we kept jumping between different time periods. Some of the rooms were from the 1800's, some from the 1900's and there was also a special exhibition that had nothing to do with the house.

mike Osmers

The woodwork and fine detail is something you wont come across often in your life. Definitely a cool house to visit with a neat history behind it.

It's a very nice and well maintained garden. Reminds me of the movie Secret Garden. Though the gentlemen who lives across the street did come to harass my group because we were sitting in the car talking. He wasn't very friendly at all.

Beautiful place. Wonderful gardens and walking paths. Spring and Autumn in the gardens is gorgeous. Impeccably maintained structure. Pleasant staff.

The docent was very knowledgeable about the house, the family, and the history of the house. Beautiful setting.

Edwin Toth

Great place to visit in the spring during garden week as is the rest of New Castle at that time.

Amy Davis

This is in New Castle, DE and there is more to enjoy than the Read House. Our tour guide was fantastic, and it was a nice trip for my mom and I. Its was a wonderful place to learn of the history of that time, and how things were different. Coming to this quaint town is really a step back in time, with the period houses, cobblestone streets, and graves dating back to the 1700s. It is truly a beautiful historic town, and has views of the Delaware Memorial Bridge. There are other buildings you can tour, and small shops. I plan to go back in the fall to get a closer look, and to do the audio tour. If you love history, quiet, laid back places, this is a great place for couples or older children. The townspeople are friendly, the neighborhood safe, many people were walking their dogs-their was even a drinking fountain for them by the courthouse. Such a lovely place for a day trip.
