Indulge in a quintessentially British pastime with a spot of Afternoon Tea for Two, the perfect gift experience. The 19th century tradition is enjoying something of a modern-day revival with venues all over the UK now serving up scrumptious scones, delicious cakes and savoury delights.
It’s been an institution since 1840 when the seventh Duchess of Bedford asked her footman to fetch a pot of tea with light refreshments one afternoon. The ritual soon caught on and traditional afternoon tea became a cornerstone of high society dining.
Today, it’s best known as an afternoon of sheer indulgence – and it hasn’t lost a crumb of its delectable charm. Find out for yourself with our afternoon tea deal. We’ve carefully hand-picked the best afternoon tea locations across the UK so there’s a venue to suit all occasions.
Spoil someone special to a luxury afternoon tea, round up the girls for high tea at one of the country’s trendiest boutique hotels, or make it a more relaxed affair at a cosy independent tearoom. Whatever the occasion, why not add a glass of fizz to the proceedings?
Afternoon tea may vary slightly depending on your chosen location. In any case, you’ll be treated to freshly made sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, and at most locations, a choice of cakes and pastries. Most importantly, it’ll all be served with a pot of tea or coffee.
This experience is available on selected weekdays and weekends, throughout the year, depending on the venue chosen. Restrictions may apply - please check on booking.
Generally you will spend an hour at the venue, but there is no set time.
This experience is for two people, there will be other people there on the day.
You are welcome to bring family and friends, but they will need to pay on the day.
Under 16 year olds must be accompanied by an adult. Some locations have a minimum age of 18 years.
If you have any dietary requirements, please notify the venue on booking.
This is for a voucher entitling the holder to any of the activities supplied by Activity Superstore up to the value stated.
Grovefield House (Classic Lodges) - Burnham, Buckinghamshire
Charlotte from Customer Service, May 2019
I decided to treat my sister for her birthday to an Afternoon Tea and we were not disappointed! We went to Grovefield House in Buckinghamshire and right from the start the venue gave off an impressive vibe.
All staff made us feel very welcome from the moment we stepped into the grand entrance hall and any other member of staff we met always had a smile on their face or time for a quick hello which was refreshing.
We were seated in the main bar / dining area to begin with and then moved into a separate area for those taking part in the Afternoon Tea. There was nothing wrong with the room whatsoever, but at the time of our booking, we were the only people having Afternoon Tea and as such the room did not have the same atmosphere as the other area.
We were quickly shown the menu and you both get to select two sandwich fillings each, to accompany the sweet treats, scones and tea!
The scones were homemade and still warm which was beautiful and most definitely the stand out moment for me personally. The sweet treats offered a wide variety so there was sure to be something that took your fancy, but I have to admit we loved it all and there was not a crumb left in sight.
Afterwards we decided to take a stroll around the grounds to admire the scenery, I would defiantly recommend this venue for those wanting a peaceful afternoon treat.
Bring an appetite and make sure you leave time to wander around the beautiful grounds.
