This is a special place with a tragical past but a hopeful future. I would recommend going in the early morning. It gets quite hot and humid at the end of day.

Architecturally it's a nice place to see but we didn't enjoy here since it carries the memories of one of the darkest chapter of Indian history. It has been maintained very nicely but the authorities. A must-see for the history buffs.

It is spread over a big area. 1857 Memorial museum is also in British residency. A lot of history is associated with this place but I didn't find any guide here.

Sorry for the delay but I did not see your message. We went on the Lucknow Chowk Heritage Walk with Saadan who was brilliant. You can find it on the uptourism web site.
