Downton Abbey-Inspired Weekend
August 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - August 20, 2017 @ 11:30 pm$395
Maybe you can’t spend the weekend at Downton Abbey, but you can spend it in a stately mansion with a marble vestibule and fireplaces in the bedrooms. Attend a comfortable dinner with a detailed explanation of table settings, etiquette history, and properly managing everything from unfolding a napkin to holding your coffee cup. Gain new appreciation for the downstairs staff by decanting through a silver funnel or serving the sauce, all in a dining room which has hosted elegant dinners since before the Titanic went down. Breakfast will be laid out on the sideboard each morning with strawberry jam and lemon curd for your toast which will be served in silver toast racks. Full English afternoon tea and tea etiquette talk. Join us for this informative weekend and you’ll never hear Lady Mary say that you’re not fastidious about doing things properly.
Cost: $335 sing;e, $295 pp double includes two nights’ lodging, one dinner with talk and one afternoon tea with talk. Attend only the dinner for $47.50 or tea for $22.00.
