In Bristol, small town in the Narragansett Bay at just a few minutes away from Barrington we can have a real the English-style tea and visit the very nice Blithewold Mansion. So we tested the tea at 3 pm during Christmas time.
The Blithewold Mansion is a 13 hectare arboretum built in the 1890’s on the Bristol harbor and contains approximately 300 species of plants. The building is classified in the National Register of the Historic Places.
Blithewold at Christmas
tea because there are only few tables. When you arrive, you can test the English tea experience. Everybody is served at the same time in a beautiful very English tea service with small sandwiches and scones and cookies
The Mansion is entirely decorated for the Christmas season with Christmas trees in each rooms with a different theme. It was a very nice experience for the Christmas season.
Blithewold in Spring
Another time of the year you need to visit the Blithewold Mansion is during spring time when daffodils are in bloom, it is called Daffodil Days. The park is surrounded by Daffodils it is really beautiful.
The Mansion organizes many events throughout the seasons as music concerts on the lawn in the evening in summer, official receptions, workshops for the children or adults or camps for the children.
The price for Afternoon tea is $30 per person but include the visit of the Mansion, it is sure that we don’t have a tea every day:-)
