If theatrics and grandeur is your cup of tea, you’ll be absolutely thrilled to discover Bygone Beautys’ Traditional High Tea. Set amongst the backdrop of a unique and charming old-world dining room, your waiter, complete with top hat and tails, will deliver this decadent delight to your table with a degree of pomp and circumstance. Presented silver service style on an elegantly decorated afternoon tea tray-mobile, it is an experience reminiscent of decades past when life was more leisurely. Relax, as you anticipate, at your dining table where every little detail - from the table cloth to the placement of fine bone china and quality cotton afternoon tea serviettes - is set with precision and authenticity. Watch with delight as your triple-tier cake stand of treats, framed by two British Union Jack flags, arrives to the tune of Land of Hope and Glory.

Reminiscing... Back in September of 2011, Bygone Beautys was featured on the popular ABC television show Collectors. Needless to say our teapot collection has grown since then and we are the ones with over 5,500 teapots tucked away! We have recently renovated, with works completed in August 2015, to make room for all of the teapots, with hundreds more now on display in the beautiful new museum space, and have re-vamped the now spacious and expanded tearooms.
