Why to visit British Residency

During the 1857 insurrection, this once-composed structure was transformed into a British refugee camp. The fort is now in ruins, and all of the colonisers who died during the Lucknow siege are buried nearby in a British cemetery. The Archaeological Survey of India now protects the ruins. Every evening, the Residency conducts a light and sound show commemorating the 1857 insurrection.The British Residency has three storeys, including a protected basement, a billiards room, offices, and a library. At the entryway, there is also a large cross commemorating Major General Sir John Inglis and his wife.

Special Tip

Except on Mondays, the Residency is open every day.
