Children's Afternoon Tea Party

When: Thu., July 7, 2 p.m. and Thu., Aug. 18, 2 p.m. 2022

Austenites-in-training and their very proper parents get a taste of what high tea was like in Old England at an afternoon tea for kids of all ages at the Governor’s House in Hyde Park. With scones, finger sandwiches, pastries and unlimited pots of the freshly brewed beverage, attendees may think they’ve been transported back in time to the Regency era. Along with the treats, guests receive a lesson in the history of this British tradition, the secret to brewing a perfect pot and the full range of tea party etiquette.

Price: $14-40; preregister.
