Join us for afternoon tea on the beautiful lawns of Eldon House, overlooking the Thames River. This year, we are offering two options to delight our guests! Our light tea option is designed as a lighter snack, and our full tea option offers a more substantial assortment of sweet treats. Please note that due to health and safety limitations we are not able to accommodate savory items as in previous years. Guests are required to purchase their tickets online in advance for both the full tea and light tea.
Light Tea is $15.00 (incl. HST) per person and includes a scone with butter and jam, fresh fruit and a small dessert item.
Full Tea is $25.00 (incl. HST) per person and includes a scone with butter and jam, fresh fruit, and an assortment of small French pastries.
