The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon are delighted to share their home with you, one of England’s most beautiful and romantic Castles on Mother’s Day. Guest numbers are limited for this special event.

You will be welcomed into the Saloon, at the very heart of the Castle, where your Tour will begin. Our guides will take you through the State Rooms that are so familiar from the TV series.  Enjoy hearing about the history and the works of art as well as anecdotes from the filming. The Tour will also take you round the Gallery and Castle Bedrooms.

After the Tour, you will be invited into the State Dining Room to enjoy a Champagne Afternoon Tea.  

You can then explore the Egyptian Exhibition in the atmospheric Cellars of the Castle. The Exhibition tells the story of the world famous discovery, in 1922, of the Tomb of Tutankhamun by the 5th Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter.

Entrance is divided into three groups. You can purchase tickets for admission at 10:30am, or 12pm or 1:30pm. Whichever entrance time you choose, you will be able to enjoy a Tour of the Castle, the Egyptian Exhibition followed by Afternoon Tea in the State Dining Room.

Guests with admission tickets for 10.30am or 12pm are welcome to enjoy the Gardens and visit the Gift Shop after their Castle visit. Guests with admission tickets for 1.30pm are welcome to arrive on site from 12.30pm to allow sufficient time to enjoy the Gardens and visit the Gift Shop. 

Regrettably, the Castle is not able to provide specific vegetarian or gluten-free menus for this event. It is a very traditional Tea.
