"Visit the Viceroys Lodge" Top 5 Page for this destination Shimla Things to Do Tip by NEILHALLIDYA

Shimla Things to Do: 5 reviews and 2 photos

Patterned after an English great house, complete with its own small parish church, the old Viceroys Lodge is stepped in character and well worth a visit.

This was the builiding the likes of Curzon used when retreating from the heat of Delhi in the summer months.

I only visited the gardens and viewed the builiding from the outside because of time constrains (I turned up at 17:00 when it shuts) but was impressed by the building that would not have been out of place in Oxford or Cambridge.

Tours are available for less than $10.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
