Tea Cancelled

The Cathedral is currently closed for tours, and our Tea program is on hold.

We are not accepting Tour and Tea reservations at this time. All Hallows Guild will continue to evaluate conditions to determine when we can safely resume serving our guests.

About Tour and Tea

For more than 25 years All Hallows Guild, in conjunction with the Cathedral’s Visitor Services Department, has served afternoon tea in Washington, DC’s highest tea room. Guests enjoy Earl Grey tea, a variety of finger sandwiches, scones, and sweets in St. Paul Room of the Cathedral’s south Tower  - surrounded by some of the best views of Washington.

Tea and Tour is offered most Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The tour portion begins promptly at 1:30, and Tea follows at 2:45 pm in the Pilgrim Observation Gallery. After Tea, maximize your experience by attending Cathedral Evensong or an organ recital.

The cost is $40 per person, and reservations with payment are required in advance.



Reservations and advance payment are required. Please note: we are not currently accepting reservations.

Tour and Tea Refund Policy

For non-group reservations, cancellations or date changes may be made at least 7 days prior to the tour date. If the tour date is less than 7 days away, no refunds or exchanges are allowed.

Group Reservation Policy

Groups of 11 or more may hold their reservation with a $200 non-refundable deposit. The balance is due two weeks before the event. Depending on availability, we can accommodate groups as large as 45 persons.
