The Duchess' Tea Room

Eat and Drink With Us

The Duchess’ Tea Room is set within the grounds of Woburn Abbey and offers a fine selection of teas, coffees, cakes and biscuits all freshly prepared. Alongside this there is a range of light lunches and snacks; all of which can be enjoyed inside, outside or in the gardens.   

If you have any specific dietary requirements or allergies, please do speak to a member of staff within the tea room or contact us prior to your visit.

All our coffees are made with Fairtrade coffee beans, freshly ground and brewed.

Afternoon Tea At Woburn

Afternoon Tea was popularised in the 1840s by Duchess Anna Maria, wife to the 7th Duke of Bedford. During your visit to Woburn Abbey and Gardens, why not enjoy a Duchess Anna Maria Afternoon Tea with your friends and family at The Duchess’ Tea Room? Please note The Duchess' Tea Room is located in the Grounds of the Abbey and not the Abbey itself. Download our Afternoon Tea Menu
