Home to seven royal governors and the first two elected governors in Virginia, the Palace was meant to project British authority and wealth. From the large display of period swords and guns to the elegant décor and grand ballroom, the Palace was built to impress.

The Governor's Palace in Williamsburg, Virginia was the official residence of the Royal Governors of the Colony of Virginia. Beautifully restored and a fantastic place to spend Independence Day! The actors were superb and did a great job educating the patrons. The gardens and maze were immaculate…

Step through the gates of the Palace which was home to the British and American Governors of Virginia. The gardens are beautiful year round, don't miss the Maze hedge.
