Afternoon tea

We are very excited to be able to offer afternoon tea again from 19 May.

Treat yourself and the family to a sumptuous afternoon tea, with a selection of savoury treats and sweet fancies. Make it extra special by adding a glass of Waddesdon English sparkling wine.

We are particularly proud of everything we create at Waddesdon. Our chef's make their own jam, exquisite cakes and pastries which are used in your afternoon tea.
