Private & Exclusive!

Enchanted Evenings

Share all the magic of Talliston House & Gardens with these exclusive evenings for two to four.

Everyone knows someone who will love Talliston… so what better way to share the magic of the house and gardens than with an exclusive evening wandering the labyrinth of rooms on a personal tour for two to four guests, before sitting by candlelight in the Victorian watchtower for a light supper.



A unique gift for anyone interested in history, architecture or just someone who would love to escape the modern world and step into the timeless labyrinth of rooms at Talliston for a few hours. Enchanted Evenings are booked in advance and each experience is redeemable for weekday evenings (Monday-Thursday from 19:00) or Sunday (from 16:30). 


The Gift Set comprises an invitation scroll for a private

red carpet tour including a high tea supper and a Talliston

Book of Days 13-month calendar. 



The evening supper menu comprises a Sweet & Savoury

Selection of: Brie, Cranberry and Mayonnaise Sandwiches,

Smoked Ham, Mature Cheddar & Chutney Sandwiches,

and Homemade Raspberry Scones with Cream, plus a 

fine Tea & Coffee Selection comprising: Elmwood Inn

Kentucky Blend, Punjana Fine Tea, Green Tea, Café du

Monde New Orleans Coffee & Chicory, Douwe Egberts

Pure Gold, Decaffeinated tea or coffee – or maybe some Fruit & Herbal Infusions: Lemon & Ginger, Peppermint, Camomile or Red Berries.
