Step back in time to the era of Jane Austen and experience English high tea service in the 1806 Gore mansion, built in the same style as the country estates featured in her novels. Adults and older children enjoy a 3-tiered tea including sweets, savories, and sandwiches while playing Austen-era games and listening to anecdotes about life during Austen’s time. Costumed guides will take guests on tours of the mansion’s upper floors. The Handmade for the Holidays boutique featuring gifts handmade or designed in the US will be open for holiday shopping. Tea seating is family-style at tables up to 8. Regency costumes are encouraged! Tickets must be purchased at least one week prior to tea date.
