Gather Around

Served in the luxurious parlors of this grand mansion built by Lyman Robinson in 1882, our Afternoon Tea is a special affair. Tea time emerged as a wonderful tradition across British homes a few decades before the Royal Gorge Mansion came to life in the U.S. Known for its sweet and savory treats, accompanied by spectacular freshly brewed teas and clotted cream, Afternoon Tea became an excellent excuse for gathering dear friends and family.

Classic Afternoon Tea

Your Afternoon Tea begins with a peruse of the Mansion Menu, which features unique tea blends including classic selections like English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Jasmine and Rooibos. Several sophisticated seasonal blends will also be available throughout the year. Given the occasion, bottles and glasses of bubbly and wine, along with homemade hot chocolate and other sweet and savory goodies will also be on offer to complement your classic Afternoon Tea experience.

Every Royal Gorge Mansion tea experience includes your choice of tea and a tiered tray of dainty, delicious finger sandwiches, sweet petit fours, scones and of course, clotted cream, jam and whipped butter.

Served at 12 p.m. every Saturday and more frequently throughout the summer and holiday season!

Afternoon Tea with Santa

Throughout the holiday season (November and December) we invite you to join us at the beautifully decorated Royal Gorge Mansion for a very special Afternoon Tea with Santa Claus. Enjoy a freshly brewed pot of your choice of tea with delicious finger sandwiches, classic tea pastries, and homemade scones with English double Devonshire cream, whipped butter and jam. In the grand tradition of English tea service, sandwiches will be two-bite size and presented with a variety on the plate, along with our selection of made-from-scratch baked goods.

Children are encouraged to wear cozy pajamas and prepare to meet St. Nick, who will present them with a special gift.
