A Tour & A Tea – the right house for Christmas…
FOLLOWING THE GREAT SUCCESS of our A-utumn Tour & Tea… why not join us this Christmas – just as it sounds, A Tour & A Tea is a guided tour of the Hall by one of our highly knowledgeable guides,
followed by a delicious Afternoon Tea freshly prepared by Elizabeth Dennison of The Dusty Miller.
“… Perhaps my father’s most outstanding characteristic, was his capacity for absent-minded lapses of memory. He inherited five houses, of which Grantley was the largest. My memories of school holidays are somewhat jumbled, owing to the fact that my father developed a habit of taking a new country house every year….
The only place he never parted with was Markenfield Hall.
My Aunt Carlotta, who only visited us at Christmas or family occasions, was always much puzzled and once violently
embarrassed, by my father’s peripatetic land ownership. The unfortunate old lady went to the wrong country house to stay with us one Christmas: no one, least of all my father having
remembered to tell her that he had changed his abode.”SILVER SPOON – the memoirs of 6th Lord Grantley
The tour will begin at 2:00pm, and will be followed by Afternoon Tea at 3:30pm. Booking is essential as places are limited. A Tour & A Tea costs £27.50 per person.
