Afternoon Tea at Blenheim Palace

  • Afternoon Tea

    Enjoy a quintessentially British treat with an elegant English Afternoon Tea in the Orangery Restaurant.

    Each Afternoon Tea includes freshly made traditional sandwiches with seasonal inclusions, a selection of home-made cakes, scones and delicacies. Each tea is also accompanied by still or sparkling Blenheim water for a refreshing taste which couldn’t be found closer to the source. This year a highlight is the Smoked Salmon, a signature Searcy’s ingredient which is caught and smoked at a family-run smokehouse on the edge of Aberdeen Harbour.


    New for 2019 will be The Blenheim High Tea. Unlike Afternoon Tea, high tea wasn’t seen as a luxury, but as an early evening meal eaten to regain one’s strength. Instead of light snacks high tea would usually involve tea, bread, savoury snacks and, occasionally, meat. The latest addition to The Orangery’s afternoon menu includes options such as Blenheim Welsh Rarebit, Eggs Royale, Eggs Benedict or Florentine.
