The Holy City's Quaint Courtyards

Kings courtyard with lion head fountain

There’s a certain calm that comes from sitting outside and taking in the cooler temperatures of the city. Make the experience even more enjoyable with a quaint garden setting.

Mrs. Whaley didn’t expect her memoir, “Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden,” to hit the New York Times bestseller list. But it did and today her garden remains one of the very few private gardens open to the public. Highlights to see as you relax include the reflecting pool and the flagstone patio. During the fall months join Middleton Place’s Garden Strolls and Wine Tastings. Each week you’ll explore a different area of the renowned gardens while sipping fine wines from around the world. If you’d rather not have to go out to enjoy the comfort of a quiet courtyard, stay a night at the Kings Courtyard Inn. Take your morning tea or coffee out to the garden, perfectly nestled in the back of the historic 19th century King Street home.
