Summer High Teas

27/03/2020 - 29/03/2020

Gather a group of friends and don your finery for your annual chance to celebrate and savour the traditional ritual of high tea at Alberton.

Over one weekend only, enjoy dainty sandwiches, scones, savouries and cakes with a showcase of luxury teas from Harney & Sons, served from vintage bone china and antique silverware on tables adorned with antique linens and floral displays. Soak up the beauty of the grand ballroom or the tranquil garden from the verandah.

The tea services run from Friday 27 March to Sunday 29 March with two sittings at 11am & 2pm. Come along for morning or afternoon tea or consider it a light luncheon. With delicious bites (three savouries, scones, two mini cakes) prepared by award winning caterers Little Wolf and tea or coffee, tickets are $45 per person. For full indulgence add a glass of bubbles for $8.

Tickets include a goodie bag and entry to explore the house (usually $10).

Always an occasion, tickets make a lovely gift for birthdays, anniversaries or special occasions. Make sure to book promptly as these events always sell out in advance of the dates.  Limited seating to 50 per sitting.

Bookings are essential - we can't guarantee places for walk-ups.
