Hammond Castle, Paper House, Granite Quarry Canyon, Ocean Views


Cape Ann is a rocky cape in northeastern Massachusetts on the Atlantic Ocean. The cape is located approximately 30 miles northeast of Boston and forms the northern edge of Massachusetts Bay. Cape Ann includes the city of Gloucester, and the towns of Essex, Manchester-by-the-Sea, and Rockport.

Tour Highlights:

- Hammond Castle
- Paper House
- Granite Quarry
- Halibut Point State Park

Itinerary

First, we will visit Hammond Castle, built by Dr. J. Hammond, an author of over 400 patents and 800 inventions. You have the opportunity to visit a real castle and learn about castle life through an interactive presentation in the Great Hall, a tour of the castle that focuses on on both medieval life and the castle's unique collection of medieval artifacts and architecture, and a visit to the tower dungeon. The inventions room may be requested, but is not usually part of this tour. Then, we'll go to see Paper House, and then, we will be heading to the Halibut State Park and Granite Quarry.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Let me know the address of your hotel and I'll find a spot to meet, that is comfortable to both of us.

End location: I'll try to drop as close as possible to your hotel or at least near the T station (subway).
