It is hard to think of a dining experience more British or decadent than a traditional afternoon tea. In Shakespeare’s England, you are never far from a tiered selection of dainty treats, and lashings of tea (or bubbly!) waiting to be served in fabulous surroundings.
Afternoon Tea in Hotels
Settle into a plush armchair in the opulent drawing room of a country house hotel like Mallory Court Country House Hotel & Spa, gaze across the topiary gardens of Billesley Manor Hotel & Spa as you sip on a glass of fizz, or reserve a spot for an al fresco afternoon tea on a sun-soaked terrace overlooking the River Avon at the Arden Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon. For something a little heartier, we recommend the Knight's Afternoon Tea at Coombe Abbey Hotel.
Afternoon Tea in Visitor Attractions

Enjoy an afternoon tea with a vintage feel at Stratford’s FourTeas, a 1940’s themed tearoom, or how about an indulgent cream tea aboard the Shakespeare Express - a traditional steam train that runs between Birmingham and Stratford-upon-Avon.
