We invite you to be treated like a “queen,” as your Victorian Holiday Tea includes a period Holiday setting, holiday musical arrangements performed by period-clad musicians, and the entire service staff is in costume.

The Dickens’ Victorian Teas are an annual must attend holiday event that embodies the customary practice of this ritual as done by generations past. People of all ages from Grandchildren to Grandparents will enjoy the relaxed pace of this time-honored tradition and have a memorable experience.
