The Castle of Chambord opens everyday -- except January 1, May 1 and December 25--, from 9 am to 5:45 pm from April to June, to 4:45 pm from October to March and to 6:45 pm from July to August. In the area you will find several restaurants, bars and souvenir shops.
You can get to Chambord by car or by train. To get here on your own car, you have to go to Blois, and then take a secondary road to Chambord. To get here by train you have to get to Blois, and take one of the buses that go to Chambord at the bus stop next to the train station. Unfortunately there are only a couple of buses everyday, you do not have much freedom. If you do not have a lot of time, you can reserve one of the "Excursions in the Loire River" tours. You will find more information about these and other tours in the main tourist offices in Tours and Blois.
