Steeped in history and known around the world as a British pastime, when visiting the Cotswolds afternoon tea is a tradition that should always take priority. Experience an unforgettable afternoon tea from award winning venues across Gloucestershire.

Dating back to the 1830s, the tradition of afternoon tea was founded by the Duchess of Bedford. It is documented that she did not like the period of time between luncheon and dinner, so opted for a long and social event with friends. Almost 200 years later, this quintessential English tradition remains as loved as when it was first created.
