Downton Abbey Afternoon Tea

£12.95 per person BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL

“Principles are like prayers; noble, of course, but awkward at a party.” – Violet Crawley

Watched the movie? Want to experience the decadence of the era?

Our beautiful ballroom has been in the heart of Whitby since 1928. Join us in our beautiful dressed ballroom for a very genteel Afternoon Tea, served on vintage china.

Will you choose The Lady, The Dowager or The Earl afternoon tea? Each afternoon tea is themed, and you can choose your favourite on the day. All guests will be served a selection of sandwiches, delicious cakes and treats, and of course our homemade scones.



24th October – 15th December

Free to attend

An evolving art exhibition and more, presented by Decadent Drawing, in association with Tomorrows Ghosts Festival and Folk Horror Revival.

There will be pieces by creatives and artists, for everyone to observe and also interact with, with the opportunity to purchase pieces. The pieces will be periodically changed throughout the exhibition, so there will always be something new to see, as the exhibition evolves. “Art” with added extras and very special guest to be announced.

The exhibition will run from 25th October until 15th December in the Ballroom. An invite only preview will take place on 24th October.

We invite you to step over the Threshold…..
