Celebrate the holiday season and ring in the new year by enjoying a special holiday tea service at The Huntington.

This one-of-a-kind dining experience will take place on Dec. 30, 31, and Jan. 1 under the beautiful dome of the Rose Hills Foundation Garden Court. Enjoy a variety of teas, a delicious assortment of traditional English tea sandwiches, delectable desserts, freshly made scones, and a complimentary glass of champagne or a holiday specialty cocktail. Experience the time-honored tradition of afternoon tea service, in advance of our Rose Garden Tea Room reopening in 2023. Two seatings are available each day.
