For the ultimate afternoon tea experience, where the setting is as sumptuous as the tasty treats being served, then Weston Park really has got it all, making it one of the leading destinations for one of the country’s great traditions this summer.
Three special afternoon tea experiences will take place 8, 9 and 10 August,when exquisite flavours, delicate savouries, perfectly crafted pastries and an array of mouthwatering sweet delights will be brought together by Weston’s chefs to create A Taste of Summer. Refreshing Pimms and the simple joy of strawberries and cream captures the magic of summer, with vintage tea stands, feminine china, white linen and fresh cut flowers from the garden adding the final touches.
Served in the Victorian Orangery overlooking the immaculately manicured Italian Gardens, Weston Park has fashioned the perfect way to spend a blissful summer’s day. Guests can walk around the pleasure grounds, explore the 17th century house, parklands and the rest of the grounds before or after they take tea.
Weston Park is a place that was made for indulging the tradition of afternoon tea; in the 18th century the then lord and lady of the manor, Sir Henry and Lady Bridgeman even built the Temple of Diana in the grounds of the estate as a place to entertain guests over afternoon tea. This is now one of the unusual self-catered historic buildings dotted around the grounds where guests can enjoy a short stay break.
A Taste of Summer is £27.50 per person, or £33.50 per person with a glass of Prosecco and includes admission to the House, Park and Gardens.
