Afternoon Tea at The Woburn Hotel

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea". - Henry James

There is nowhere better to experience this quintessentially English custom than at The Woburn Hotel. The fact that the 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, means that we know more than most about afternoon tea.

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 £17.25 per person. 

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