Located near Pasadena, California, the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens is a jewel of a destination! It offers a library showcasing rare books such as a Gutenberg Bible and stellar art collections including one of the most comprehensive collections of 18th- & 19th- century British and French art in the United States. It is home to Lawrence’s Pinkie and Gainsborough’s Blue Boy. If that isn’t enough there are 120 acres of botanical gardens which feature more than a dozen specialized gardens including the Rose Garden, the Japanese Garden, the Chinese Garden and a delightful Children’s Garden.
When you include the Rose Garden Tea Room, the Huntington is the perfect setting for a memorable day spent with friends or in solitude. This lovely tea room overlooks the 3 acre Rose Garden and the charming Herb Garden. It offers a traditional English tea. A pot of brewed tea of choice is brought to each guest and a basket of freshly baked scones served at each table. From a central buffet, you may chose from a sumptuous variety of savory finger sandwiches, imported and domestic cheeses, fresh fruits, chilled seasonal salads, and specialty petite desserts to which you can return as often as you like. Refills of tea and scones are limitless as well and served upon request.
