Visitor Information

Biltmore®, located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, is the perfect escape. To make the most of your visit, we offer the following planning tips:

  • Purchase your tickets in advance. With seven or more days’ advance purchase, you’ll save $10 per ticket. Purchase advance tickets online or by calling 800-411-3812.
  • Arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your Biltmore House entry to allow time to park and catch a shuttle to Biltmore House.  This is especially important on Biltmore House Reservation Days
  • For a more leisurely visit, consider joining us Sunday through Friday; on these days, you will typically encounter fewer guests. See hours and directions.
  • Dress comfortably. Wear walking shoes and layers for the changing mountain weather.
  • Make reservations at one of our many estate restaurants.
  • Review our suggested itineraries and frequently asked questions for additional information.
