Newport, Rhode Island: Cliff Walk Gilded Age Audio Tour

Explore the history of Newport's mansions and the families that occupied them as you enjoy a scenic stroll along the Cliff Walk. Wander past Gilded Age palaces like the Breakers, Marble House, Belmont Estate, and many more, while listening to an informative audio guide on your phone. Head to the starting point, open your app, and set out on your tour of Newport's Cliff Walk. Discover how, at the turn of the 20th century, millionaires from New York and beyond competed for status by building palatial estates and throwing lavish galas in the ballrooms of their summer cottages. Wind your way along the coastal walkway, passing by mansions like the Breakers, Rosecliff, Belmont Estate, and Rough Point. Home by home, discover how these estates were built and why so many of them were simply abandoned or sold off for a fraction of what they cost to build. Hear about each impressive property and about the family behind it. Learn about Cornelius “The Commodore” Vanderbilt who built the most immense fortune in America at the time. And find out how his descendants squandered it.

Your audio-guided tour comes to an end at Bailey's Beach.

Overall rating

The information was good. Sometimes I was told that I could now click on “learn more”, but the option wasn’t there. I would have liked music during the breaks/and also more information.

The first part of the tour up to the breakers was only seaside views. The mansion properties had hedges so high I couldn't see any of them.

Great walk and commentary. Took a bit of work to find the starting location and to get it set up. After that, it was easy to use.

A wonderful walk, with an informative guide. I highly recommend this experience.

Quickly able to get tour up and running Great information
