Join us for the annual Tor House Garden Party - Carmel's unique springtime celebration of poetry, flowers and history.
Tor House will open its doors and gardens to the public allowing you to stroll the gardens at their spring peak, climb Hawk Tower to enjoy the magnificent view of Carmel Bay and Point Lobos, and see the house and tower rooms that Robinson Jeffers and his family loved so much.
Tea and wonderful sweet and savory treats will be served in the Jeffers’ dining room, and there will be punch and more sweets and tea sandwiches available in the garden.
Entrance to the Garden Party is $15.00. No advance reservations are necessary. No one under 12, please.
There is no better way to taste the atmosphere of early 20th century Carmel or appreciate the poetry of Robinson Jeffers than to come to Tor House, set on the shore of an ocean and an outcropping of land that gave Jeffers constant inspiration.
