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.
Suki Teas and Hot Drinks
A wide selection of loose leaf premium Suki pots of tea and infusions are available to choose from as well as coffees and other hot drinks. Choose from Woburn Abbey’s own Fairtrade Woburn Blend, a Fairtrade Earl Grey Blue Flower or the more exotic Mango Tango and White Tea Mao Feng. 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.
Our Afternoon tea is very popular with limited availability each day, we ask visitors to please pre-book to avoid disappointment. You can either contact us ahead of your visit, or ask at The Duchess' Tea Room before 12 noon on the day.
Served from 2.00pm to 4.00pm in the summer season, and 1.00pm to 3.00pm in the winter season, when the gardens are open. Afternoon Tea costs £13.50 and includes entry to Woburn Abbey Gardens. There are also Gift Vouchers for Afternoon Tea which make a perfect birthday or Christmas present and can be purchased online.
