Description

Mansions on Fifth provides the perfect back drop for a traditional afternoon tea AND the "country house" setting for the story that eventually became Frankenstein. Learn about Frankenstein, Shelley, and 19th century anatomy with Rebecca May.  We are calling this event, "Frankenstein, inside & out" for a reason! Britsburgh has arranged for this exclusive event, just in time for Halloween!

 

At Mansions on Fifth you will be Lord Byron's guests during this country house party attended by Mary Shelley that spawned the foundation of her masterpiece, Frankenstein. You will savor tea sandwiches, scones, pastries, and your selection of tea.  And since this is afternoon tea, ladies, please feel free to wear your hats; or if you wish to get a jump on Halloween, feel free to come in costume.

 

NOTE:  Price is all inclusive (includes tea, gratuity, taxes, and valet parking).
