Lonely Planet review

Designed by Richard Morris Hunt and built in 1892, Ochre Court offers a grand view of the sea from its soaring three-story hallway. Elsewhere you can find a rainbow of stained glass, pointed arches, gargoyles and other emblems of an architecture inspired by a medieval (and mythical) French Gothic. Ochre Court now houses the administration of Salve Regina University, and as such provides an interesting example of the repurposing of a Newport mansion.

You can visit much of the main floor anytime during opening hours. In summer there are guided tours.
