Afternoon Tea in the Mansion - 1:30 p.m., Thurs., April 28
Reserve your Table for Tea at Blithewold
Walk the grounds, tour the mansion and then join us in the Dining room for a lovely afternoon treat. Blithewold's informal Tea features our own custom-blended tea served alongside sweet and savory items including one of our favorite bites -- Bristol Bakery's scrumptious scone!
For the first time we're taking a limited amount of reservations for each seating. Your reservation can only be made using this website (please, no calls). Please click on the "sign up for this" link above.
PLEASE NOTE: If you don't see the "sign up for this" link at the top of the page, it's because of one of the two reasons listed below.
- We stop taking reservations one day before the Tea so that we can arrange the dining room accordingly.
- Or, guests have made reservations for the portion of the dining room that has been set aside for reserved seating.
But don't worry, we are saving some seats to accommodate walk-ins for each Tea. Those seats will be given on a first come, first served basis. Or, you could make a reservation for another day!
The price for Tea includes admission to the Gardens & Mansion.
- Adults $22
- AAA $21
