Experience life as a wealthy merchant family in the early twentieth century in this guided tour of the Olveston Historic Home. Learn the game of croquet from an expert player while sipping tea on the lawns - just like you'd imagine life in a Jane Austen novel.
Enjoy a guided tour through the Olveston Historic Home in Dunedin and experience this time capsule of Dunedin architecture and style. Designed by acclaimed English architect Sir Ernest George, Olveston was built as a family home and furnished with fine art, furniture and artefacts from all around the world and will be sure to take you back to years already passed.
At the completion of your guided tour, learn the finer art of croquet with expert tuition from a championship croquet player. You and your group can imagine themselves in Edwardian days amongst the gardens partaking in this game of strategy, skill and sophistication.
