Perfect afternoon tea

For a wonderfully decadent treat, we can personally recommend heading to Blenheim Palace for its delicious Afternoon Tea, which is now served in the Orangery Restaurant overlooking the private Italian Garden. You can choose from the Marlborough Champagne Afternoon Tea, the Orangery Celebration Tea with Bubbles (with a glass of Searcys Cuvee Brut NV Champagne) and the classic Blenheim Palace Traditional Afternoon Tea: all made by head chef Billy Bush and his team using many ingredients from the palace’s own estate. Afterwards, you could explore the 2,000 acre landscaped parkland, or inside the palace on one of the new ‘Upstairs, Downstairs’ or ‘Private Apartments’ tours. Booking is necessary for afternoon tea and a Palace, Park and Gardens tickets is required. For full details, visit
