Afternoon Tea at the Castle

Enjoy an elegant Afternoon Tea at the Castle. This tradition was first made popular by Anna Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in 1840. It is said The Duchess would become peckish in between her lunch and late evening meal therefore she began inviting friends to join her in her  rooms at Woburn Abbey for tea and light refreshments; and so the tradition of Afternoon Tea began.

To continue this custom we invite you to indulge in our Afternoon Tea featuring a three tiered stand brimming with a delicious combination of savoury and sweet treats created by our talented chefs in the Café kitchen.

Lovingly prepared selection of finger sandwiches generously filled with locally sourced produce.

Home baked scones with preserves and Chantilly cream, delicate cream filled meringues with an assortment of tempting cakes.

Choose from a selection of teas or freshly brewed speciality coffee.

Served from 2.00pm-3.00pm daily | £10 per person
