Taste the decadent afternoon tea at Oulton Hall

Oulton, Yorkshire

There’s nothing so quintessentially English as settling down in the drawing room for sandwiches, scones and a pot of Yorkshire tea.

A good afternoon tea requires four main things: dainty, delicious food, fine tea, elegant surroundings and impeccable service. The lady who came up with the idea – the Duchess of Bedford - would feel right at home in the grand drawing room at Oulton Hall, a grand Grade 2 listed building in Yorkshire, surrounded by gorgeous gardens.

Sit in the decadent drawing room, enjoying a selection of sandwiches, pastries and cakes filled with locally sourced ingredients, all served under the attentive eye of the Head Butler – a member of the renowned Guild of Butlers, no less. All that remains is to sit back and allow yourself to be transported back to the 18th century, when afternoon tea was first served.
