Step back in time to experience a classic afternoon tea in a homestead once inhabited by Auckland's high society.

Enjoy light English scones with cream and jam, and tea or coffee served from vintage china and antique silverware.

Soak up the beauty of this 1863 mansion and heritage garden as you are served on Alberton's veranda or in the grand ballroom by Alberton's team of dedicated volunteers.

Bring along the family to explore the house and learn about Auckland's early car owners in an exhibition, Here Come the Kerr Taylors. Check out vintage vehicles belonging to members of the Chevrolet Enthusiasts Club and pose for a few photos.
