A True Victorian Afternoon

We, at Thornewood Castle, cordially invite you to join us for a Castle/Garden Tour accompanied by High Tea and to momentarily set aside the mundane and the ordinary and give grace and charm to the course of your afternoon. We promise that the atmosphere at Thornewood will wrap you in warmth and comfort leaving you perfectly content with yourself and each other having transported you back to a gentler time.

JOIN US: Dates to be announced!

Built at the end of Queen Victoria’s reign, Thornewood Castle, an English, Tudor Gothic home on American Lake, Lakewood, Washington, is the perfect setting to take a trip back in time to an era when this very special time of day was one of life’s finest pleasures. We, in the Pacific Northwest, are blessed to have a bit of the English Victorian history in our own neighborhood.

A tour of Thornewood along with Thornewood’s observance of this treasured custom of "taking tea" will temporarily interrupt your rush-a-day life and cause you to reflect, dream, and forget about your stresses.

An overview of the history of Thornewood will be given and we will also share the Victorian history of "taking tea" including customs, rituals and proper brewing of the beverage as well as answer your questions. Decaffeinated and herb teas are also available. Following your tea, there will be a grand tour of the castle and gardens with more history of how this hidden treasure came to be.

This special Castle & Garden Tour with High Tea is limited to our overnight guests, or to your group where you are our overnight guest. The price is $50.00 per person, tax included (plus B2B room charge). To book a Castle & Garden Tour with High Tea (or Lunch) call us at (253) 584-4393.
