Mothering Sunday at The Duchess’ Tea Room

Mothering Sunday at The Duchess’ Tea Room

The English social custom of taking Afternoon Tea was popularised in the 1840s by Duchess Anna Maria, wife of the 7th Duke of Bedford, who entertained her friends at Woburn Abbey. While labourers sometimes had a small sandwich or scone brought from home with their tea, the Duchess and her friends would have enjoyed afternoon tea in the comfortable surroundings of the Abbey.
