Tea With a Princess at Auchendarroch Castle
Have you wondered what it would be like to visit a historic castle and have Royal Tea with your favourite Fairytale Princess?
Be a guest at the Once Upon A Princess event, ‘Tea With A Princess’ at the heritage listed Auchendarroch House, inviting all Princesses and Princes to attend. Built in 1860, the grand old residence is as old as time – just like a real fairytale! Once Upon a Princess are bringing fairytales and history together for a magical day with the Royal Princesses.
Start the day with a picturesque drive through the leafy Adelaide Hills towards the kingdom known as ‘far far away’. Step into a world of make believe the minute you walk through the royal gates. Stroll through the gardens filled with sweet scents from the blooming roses, before making your way across the lush lawns and arrive at the castle’s regal oak door. Prepare to be enchanted the minute you enter the stately home’s grand entrance featuring an elegant timber staircase and Cinderella’s exquisite glass slipper on display.
Just like a magical fairytale, the Royal Princesses bring the storybook characters to life. The day will include singing, dancing and a meet and greet photo opportunity with favourites such as Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, the Snow Sisters, Arabian Princess, Island Princess, the Little Mermaid and Dancing Beauty. A Fairy Godmother and Princess Fairy will be sprinkling their fairy dust and magic throughout the day. You may even meet the castle’s resident Royal Fairy who sleeps in the rose garden.
The Royal Unicorn ponies will also make an appearance and the “Wish Upon A Star Dreams Come True” golden arch on display in the gardens is a gorgeous backdrop for photos.
Platter style food and refreshments will be served by the Royal Staff, all while overlooking the glorious gardens and manicured grounds.
Children are encouraged to wear their special Princess dress, and each will receive a special gift – an adorable unicorn necklace as a keepsake to remember their visit to the Royal Castle.
