November 21, 2020-January 10, 2021 – The Breakers and The Elms will be decorated in their traditional, lavish fashion for Holidays at the Newport Mansions. Admission will be by our regular tickets.

For the first time, the exterior of The Breakers and its landscape will be awash in festive lights, including 28 spruce trees strung with holiday lights along the two driveways; The Breakers façade bathed in colored light; and illumination of the historic paths, shrubbery and trees in varied color schemes as visitors stroll the grounds. The Children’s Cottage will be outlined in lights and visitors will be able to peek through the windows at Santa’s Workshop inside as Holiday music fills.
Interior tours of The Breakers and The Elms are self-guided using the free Newport Mansions audio tour app. Guests are encouraged to download the audio tour prior to arrival and bring their own earbuds. For those who prefer not to listen to the audio, one-use printed scripts are available.
Tours are one-way direction only, and social distancing and masks are required.
