Enjoy the Grand Tradition of High Tea at one of Colorado’s most historic mansions.

Served in the luxurious parlors of the Royal Gorge Mansion, built by Lyman Robison in 1884, Afternoon Tea is a special affair you won’t soon forget. This famous mansion is located just two short blocks away from the Royal Gorge Route Railroad train depot, in Canon City, Colorado.

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 more. Several sophisticated seasonal blends will also be available throughout the year. Given the occasion, bottles and glasses of bubbly and wine, your favorite beer and cocktails, and of course homemade hot chocolate. Other sweet and savory goodies are also on offer to complement your Afternoon Tea experience.

The Royal Gorge Mansion Afternoon Tea is served in individual English-style porcelain teapots accompanied by a three-tiered tea tray filled with an arrangement of gourmet finger sandwiches; delicious made-from-scratch scones and dainty petit fours — all served with preserves, whipped butter and English double Devonshire cream. Experience Afternoon Tea throughout the year, usually at 12:00 pm every Sunday and more often throughout the holiday season. Don’t miss Afternoon Tea with Santa throughout November and December!
