Follow in the footsteps of Queen Victoria with our ‘royal visit’ experience.
A special package to mark the bi-centenary of the birth of Palé Hall’s illustrious 19th century guest.
Queen Victoria visited Palé Hall in 1889 as part of a royal tour of north Wales. She was so enchanted by the house and its location that she remained for ten days, much longer than originally scheduled.
At that time Palé was still the home of the Robertson family. Henry Robertson was an industrialist who had built much of north Wales’s railway system.
The Queen arrived at Palé Hall by royal train and alighted at Llandderfel station, adjacent to the house. The station itself is now long gone, but the path of the disused railway remains. This was once the Ruabon to Barmouth line, built by Robertson; the cutting runs along Palé Hall’s boundary, between the house and the river Dee.
Victoria was particularly taken with Palé’s gardens and natural setting. One particular route she enjoyed by the river Dee is now known as the ‘Queen’s Walk’.
The Queen was very particular about hygiene and so her accommodation at Palé Hall was in the only room that had a plumbed bathroom at that time. That room – now our Victoria room – still retains its original bathroom fitments, as used by the Queen, as well as the bed in which she slept.
