Visit Highwic during Auckland Heritage Festival and experience a guided tour of this historic Victorian house in the heart of Newmarket. Step back in time as one of our visitor hosts introduces the house and the Buckland family story and then takes you on a guided tour explaining some of the secrets and perhaps showing you hidden corners of the house.

After your guided tour spend time exploring the house or in our shop, then enjoy tea and biscuits, included in the ticket price.  Three sessions to choose from.  Booking essential.
