Festive Feasts Created For Groups At Shuttleworth Mansion %7C Group Travel News

This Christmas, Shuttleworth is expanding its range of group benefits to include brand new Christmas themed afternoon teas in its mansion.

Pre-booked groups visiting on Sunday 11th December and Sunday 18th December can enjoy a festive afternoon tea served in the historic Shuttleworth Mansion.

The tea includes a selection of homemade sandwiches with festive fillings, a variety of sweet treats such as stolen and gingerbread cookies, mince pies, and scones with clotted cream and jam, plus tea or coffee and a glass of prosecco.

The tea will be followed by the opportunity for groups to explore the house where they can view its interiors, furnishings and artworks to find out more about the history of the family and the surrounding Old Warden Park from knowledgeable room stewards.

Groups can also book onto two or three course traditional Christmas lunches throughout December.

The lunches are served in The Collection restaurant on weekdays and include options such as traditional roast turkey served with roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables and Christmas pudding with custard.

Vegetarian options are included, and tea or coffee is also served alongside mince pies.

The restaurant will be festively themed with Christmas table decorations and festive music playing, and each group organiser will also receive a complimentary gift.

Smaller groups of 25 to 40 can also enjoy a private lunch in the Sun Room which overlooks the aerodrome.

Both the festive afternoon tea and lunch can be combined with discounted admission to visit the historic aircraft and vintage vehicle collection and/or the restored Swiss Garden.

The nine acre garden offers what is said to be the most complete surviving example of a Regency garden in Britain and boasts 13 listed buildings, bridges, water features, arches and ornamental structures.

Pre booked guided tours and talks can also be arranged within the museum for a small extra charge.
