High Tea

Imagine having a delicious high tea party with your friends, family and kittens! Our High Teas are held in our specially decorated High Tea room, with kittens just outside to play with. You will be served tea, coffee, savoury & sweet treats on wonderful high tea china by our volunteers. High Teas run for 90 minutes, allowing for a relaxed High Tea & plenty of time for kitten play & cuddles.

Our High Tea season runs on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays from mid-November until May.
