Definitely worth visiting. Especially when the weather is cooler. Very interesting history from the Revolt of 1857 where the Indians laid siege to this place. Beautifully manicured lawns and nice to walk around. Quite peaceful.

Enjoyed wandering through these ruins and learning the history of them. A lovely quiet oasis to enjoy an hour or so away from the noise and crowds.

If there is a place in Lucknow where I can go again and again,its the residency.It has a bloody past which is still visible today.And for those not interested in history,its a peaceful place amidst the chaotic surroundings of Lucknow.

Sorry for the delay but I did not see your message. We went on the Lucknow Chowk Heritage Walk with Saadan who was brilliant. You can find it on the uptourism web site.
