Afternoon Tea at The Woburn Hotel

The English social custom of taking Afternoon Tea was popularised in the 1840s by Duchess Anna Maria, wife of the 7th Duke of Bedford, who entertained her friends at Woburn Abbey. The Duchess is credited with popularising the custom of afternoon tea in the court of Queen Victoria. The Duchess and her friends would have enjoyed afternoon tea in the comfortable surroundings of the Abbey. 

Delicate finger sandwiches are accompanied by home made scones served with clotted cream and fresh fruit preserves, complemented by a selection of tempting cakes and pastries.  

Served daily between 3.00pm and 5.30pm, pre-booking recommended. Afternoon Tea at The Woburn Hotel is £18.50 per person.  

For larger groups or to celebrate a special occasion, please enquire about one of our private dining rooms. Additional charges may apply.
