Sherlock Holmes Mystery Weekend(s)

“Making the Grade”

Caught off guard by an unexpected visitor, Sherlock Holmes is thrust into his latest case, this time at a prestigious boarding school. Will he be able to uncover the reason why so many students are disappearing, or will the children prove to be too much of a distraction for our favorite consulting detective?

If you love a fun weekend-long event, with just enough participation to keep it fun, but not take up your whole day, then I’m guessing you’ll love the Sherlock Holmes Mystery Weekend.   In fact, the fun starts Friday night and wraps up with a Sunday afternoon luncheon, where Holmes reveals the solution of the mystery.

It is definitely time to start planning for your visit to The Queen Victoria to enjoy the upcoming 2023 Sherlock Holmes Mystery Weekends, as tickets are limited and usually sell out.

Chocolate Lover’s Weekend

On Mother’s Day weekend in 2018 we launched a wonderful special event that has become one of the most popular events at The Queen Victoria.

If you’re looking for an excuse to escape from your normal life for a weekend, what could possibly be better than a weekend in Cape May and a Saturday afternoon of chocolate indulgence at The Queen Victoria?  Our Chocolate Lover’s Weekend is the perfect way to spend a couple of days with your favorite person in the world, enjoying Cape May and getting your fill of an amazing buffet of all things chocolate.  We’ll be filling our dining room table with a vast variety of chocolate baked goods from our own kitchen, plates filled with exotic specialty chocolates, and fun dipping treats (fruits, cheeses, etc) for you to smother with one or more of our specialty chocolates that you’ll find bubbling away in six different crocks.

It is an amazing afternoon that you’ll remember for years to come.  The really good news is that this is a free event for all of our reserved guests that weekend.

Big Cheese Weekend

Complimentary cheese tasting party for all registered guests!

2024 Dates:
March 16, 2024 (BYOB)

2025 Dates
March 15, 2025 (BYOB)

Our annual Cheese Tasting party is a wonderful event and we’re really looking forward to it again.

We will be serving you in The Prince Albert Hall Building with a wide assortment of cheeses from all over the world. There will be about 12 cheeses for us to taste and each one will be labeled with its country origin, how it is made and any other fun tidbits of information we know.  We’ll also have breads from one of our local bakeries along with an assortment of specialty olive oils and other tasty goodies.

We’re holding this event from 2:00-3:30 pm Saturday afternoon Tea Time.  Now I know that for some people it is impossible to eat cheese without having a glass of wine in your hand, so we’re welcoming everyone to bring their own wine and make an afternoon of it.  The wine tends to become communal, so bring something you feel comfortable sharing.

The really good news is that this is a free event for all of our reserved guests that weekend.

Sweet and Savory

New in 2022, join us at The Queen Victoria for a Sweet and Savory extravaganza. At this special event, we’ll serve several tasty and complementary foods, each more decadent than the next. Think sweet fruit, honey, and chocolate paired with savory (possibly spicy) cheese, crackers, pretzels, and the like. Just as with our Big Cheese Weekend, we welcome you to bring your favorite wine to sip while you enjoy your sweet and savory snacks. Pair with our Winter Escape package for extra savings.
