Afternoon Tea

Best places to enjoy afternoon tea in Kent

There is nothing quite so quintessentially English as taking afternoon tea in Kent, and we like to honour this tradition with style. Many of the tearooms, cafés and hotels around the county will serve up this English delicacy – the only dilemma will be whether cream or jam goes on your scone first!

To truly enjoy this tradition, head over to Chilston Park Hotel for a true English setting. Gaze out of ceiling-high windows from this historic country house and take in the view whilst savouring the carefully prepared pastries, dainty sandwiches and the finest leaf tea. Why not indulge yourself in the wonderful afternoon tea experience at Chiddingstone Castle and its stunning Grade II listed courtyard, or enjoy pleasant treats in the Tea Lounge at the nearby Hotel du Vin in Tunbridge Wells?

If out on an afternoon coastal stroll, and you need a pick-me-up, stop by the Best Western Dover Marina Hotel & Spa which offers special afternoon high tea whilst overlooking the beach and watching the hustle and bustle of the Dover Harbour - surely one of the most luxurious ways to enjoy afternoon tea in Kent?

Meanwhile, if you're looking for total indulgence, you can splash out on a luxury spa day followed by a cream tea at London Beach Hotel, Country Club and Spa, Tenterden. For that special celebration, why not treat loved ones to a Champagne Tea which includes a glass of Champagne or, if preferred, perhaps a Kir Royale or Bellini at Eastwell Manor?
