Drayton Hall plantation c. 1738 is located in the Ashley River Historic District of Charleston, SC.

Offered once-daily on each open day at 9 am sharp (gate opens at 8:45 am). The tour begins with an orientation video in the visitor center and at the conclusion, tour guests are encouraged to take the self-guided landscape tour of the plantation property, taking in the historic landscape, sweeping views of the Ashley River, and enjoying the exciting Lowcountry vistas and wildlife which vary from location to location across this vast estate.
