“Afternoon tea

Lady Fiona Carnarvon, owner of Highclere Castle home to the Downton Abbey TV show, is in Vancouver this Friday for a special afternoon tea to celebrate the Season Six finale and final episode of the extremely popular series.

During the Downton Abbey-inspired event, guests will enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and an opportunity to mingle at the Roof atop Fairmont Hotel Vancouver before enjoying a traditional afternoon tea and presentation by Lady Carnarvon, followed by a question and answer period.
Lady Carnarvon was inspired to share the true story of Highclere Castle’s conversion to a hospital during the First World War. Using diaries, letters and photos straight out of the Edwardian era, Lady Carnarvon produced the best-selling books Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey. Guests are encouraged to dress for afternoon tea or in their best Downton Abbey attire.”
