Gatsby Tea Party in the Garden

Enjoy an afternoon of sophistication and charm as we take a step back to the roaring Twenties and all that jazz!  Revel in the nostalgia era of flapper dresses and fedoras all set in a whimsical atmosphere with an array of delectable treats and tea.  Tell all your guys and dolls to dress in your finest 1920’s attire as we will all join Rip Roaring Rita for a lesson in “The Charleston”!

About The Barker Mansion Tea Parties

Experience the enchanting allure of the Barker Mansion’s “Tea in the Garden,” an eagerly anticipated affair in the region, now open for reservations for its exclusive summer-themed tea parties.

Immerse yourself in the timeless tradition of afternoon tea, where a delightful array of sandwiches, freshly baked scones, and delectable sweets awaits, complemented by a refined selection of teas, all set amidst the picturesque backdrop of the Barker Mansion’s “Jens Jensen” Garden. Please note that we are unable to accommodate dietary allergies or modify our menu.

Our afternoon teas extend a warm welcome to both ladies and gentlemen, offering a moment of splendid indulgence for all. Children under eighteen are cordially invited to join in the festivities; however, they must be accompanied by an adult.

Each ticket to an afternoon tea at Barker Mansion includes a guided tour of the historic estate. While participation in the guided tour is optional, please note that there isn’t a separate ticket solely for the tea service. The guided tour is an exclusive amenity reserved for guests attending our afternoon tea and cannot be exchanged or utilized on alternative dates.

Please be advised that seating is limited, and we encourage group bookings for those desiring to be seated together. Tickets must be purchased online in advance. For further details and reservations, kindly visit our website or contact us directly.
