It’s that time of year again when the fine folk at Benares Historic House host the fanciest tea of the year!

The “Downton Abbey” Tea is a celebration of all things early 1900’s England, and the popular TV show;

“Join us and discover the “upstairs and downstairs” stories of the Harris and Sayers families and their domestic staff. Tour the house with guides who will highlight the lives of the family during the war years. Enjoy a traditional cream tea with tasty treats and a variety of teas while discussing the love interests of the Crawley women and the goings on below stairs. Don’t forget to wear your best hat and gloves, historic or contemporary!”

The event takes place on Sunday February 4th at 2 PM at Benares Historic House in Clarkson. The Benares House holds events like this on a regular basis and the “Downton Abbey” Tea is one of the years most popular.
