'There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.' Henry James, Portrait of a Lady, 1881.

Join us at Alberton - one of Auckland's finest historic houses - for Devonshire tea on the verandah offered as part of Auckland's annual Heritage Festival.

Don't miss the rare chance to soak up the beauty of this 1863 mansion and heritage garden over a spot of tea with light, English scones served from vintage china and silverware, by Alberton's friendly volunteers.

Bring along the family to explore the house and learn about Auckland's early car owners in an exhibition 'Here Come the Kerr Taylors'. Check out vintage vehicles belonging to members of the Chevrolet Enthusiasts Club and pose for a few photos.

Tea includes two light English scones with cream and jam & tea or coffee.
No booking required. Admission to the house - $10 adults, members & children free.

If wet, tea will be served in the ballroom.
