A Plateful of Poison (Evening Afternoon Tea)

Join us for an evening of toxifying tea and tales as the world of Poison is unearthed before your eyes. Delicious but deadly, this evening Afternoon Tea Experience is unlike any other as our Poison Garden Guides take you on an exclusive and rather unique tour.

Gorge yourself on gore as you delve into a luxury Afternoon Tea with a hint of history including real tales of poison, murder and more.

Please note that none of the food offered is legitimately poisonous and will only cause harm when eaten in ludicrous/excessive amounts or when the wrong part is consumed. This event is completely safe however, this is an adult only event due to the nature of the tour.
