Fonthill Castle

Things to Do

Swamp Rd, Doylestown, PA 18901 Get Directions

The concrete castle boasts 44 rooms, 18 fireplaces and more than 200 windows of varying sizes and shapes. The interior walls, floors and ceilings are elaborately adorned with an incredible array of Mercer’s original handcrafted tiles. Mercer incorporated his own tiles into Fonthill’s architecture as well as Persian, Chinese, Spanish, and Dutch tiles he had collected.

Over 900 prints (of the 5,000 that Mercer collected from around the world) are displayed at Fonthill. Built-in bookcases throughout Fonthill hold over 6,000 books. The museum was recently featured on A&E’s “America’s Castles.”
