Bring Your Family to Biltmore

Whatever your age, Biltmore is the perfect family escape. Make memories that last a lifetime while touring a real castle and exploring our Farmyard filled with furry and feathery friends.

Planning Tips

  • Every restaurant is family-friendly. There are a variety of dining options on the estate, and every restaurant features a children’s menu and a helpful wait staff. Whether you need extra straws or a highchair, we deliver with a smile.
  • The Winery offers complimentary grape juice for the kids.
  • Bring your stroller. Lightweight travel strollers or child backpack carriers are ideal for visiting Biltmore House. They allow you to navigate the house’s stairs with ease and give little feet a break.
  • Shoes with exposed wheels are not permitted in estate buildings for safety reasons. Please remove wheels before entering any building.
  • Take breaks during your visit to Biltmore House. There’s no rush to see it all. Head outside to the Stable Courtyard for some fresh air, a quick snack, or an early lunch at the Stable Café.
