1011 Fall 2018 Gargoyles and Earl Grey: Guided Tour with Tea at the Washington National Cathedral
Wednesday, 11:15–5:00, Nov. 14
Bus Trip: $69
Coordinator: Sally Burdick
Join OLLI friends on a guided tour with tea at the Washington National Cathedral. A national treasure, the Cathedral amazes visitors with its soaring buttresses, neo-Gothic architecture, stained glass windows, medieval-style gardens, and menacing gargoyles. An in-depth tour begins at 1:30, followed by a traditional English tea with sandwiches, scones, and a scenic view of Washington, DC, from the seventh floor Pilgrim Observation Gallery. Since tea will not be served until 2:45, you might want to have a light lunch or snack beforehand. The trip allows about an hour of extra time for browsing an exhibit, strolling in the Bishop’s garden, or shopping in the cathedral gift store before the tour. The bus will leave promptly at 11:30 from Fair Oaks Mall parking lot 57, which is outside the circular road in front of ManTech Corp. Please be on the bus no later than 11:15. The fee of $69, payable to OLLI at time of registration, includes tour, tea, transportation, and driver gratuity. We will board the bus at 4:00 to return to Fair Oaks. Registration for this event is on a first-come, first-served basis.
