Frequently asked questions about Afternoon Tea Experiences & Activities

How Long Does Afternoon Tea Last?

This varies from venue to venue, but you’ll want to allow at least an hour to enjoy every delicious mouthful on your plate and the company of your favourite people. Afternoon tea should always be a relaxed activity rather than a rushed one.

How Far in Advance Can You Book Afternoon Tea?

It’s a great idea to get your afternoon tea experience booked as soon as possible to make sure the restaurant, café or bar has availability for your preferred time, date and group size. This way, you’ll give everyone something lovely to look forward to. You can book up to a year in advance on Fizzbox but if you fancy arranging something last minute, it’s always worth having a look to see what’s available.

Can You Wear Jeans to Afternoon Tea?

Each venue will have a different dress code. If you’re going to dine at a swanky hotel, it’s a good idea to dress to impress but if you’re going to a chain bar, it’s probably fine to wear jeans. If you’re unsure, you can ask the experience provider what their dress code is when you place your enquiry.

What is Usually Served at Afternoon Tea?

Check out individual afternoon tea listings for menus to see exactly what you’ll be tucking into. Afternoon tea is a generally traditional affair so you can expect to be served a range of finger sandwiches, cakes and scones with clotted cream and jam plus that all-important pot of tea. There are always some quirkier options to book If you fancy something a bit different.

What is the Best Time to Book Afternoon Tea For?

The best time to have afternoon tea is between 12pm and 4pm. Make sure to have a small breakfast so you can fit it all in!

How Do You Arrange Afternoon Tea for a Hen Party?

If you’re planning a hen party, afternoon tea is an experience everyone will love. Arrange the ideal date and time with your group then head to Fizzbox and browse our listings for the perfect afternoon tea for your hen do. Once you’ve found one you like, place an enquiry with the experience provider. They’ll then get back to you to let you know availability and answer any questions before you make you booking.

Are There Vegan Options for Afternoon Tea?

Yes, of course! There are loads of venues to choose from that offer vegetarian and vegan afternoon teas so no one has to feel left out. Let the experience provider know if you have any other special dietary requirements when you place your enquiry and they’ll let you know what they can do for you.

What is the Average Price for Afternoon Tea?

The average price for afternoon tea is around £25-£30 per person but this depends on where you dine and if you include alcohol. Our prices for afternoon tea start at as little as £15 per person. What a bargain!

What Other Activities Should I Consider Booking on the Same Day?

If you fancy treating yourself to a fun day packed with activities, you’ve come to the right place. Fizzbox has a massive range of activities and experiences you can do before or after your afternoon tea from escape rooms to cocktail making, nude life drawing to archery, spa days to paddle boarding.

What Type of Celebration Would This Activity Work Well For?

Any! Whether you want to treat your mum on Mother’s Day, have a romantic meal for two on an anniversary, celebrate a graduation, promotion, hen do or birthday party or just treat yourself for no reason at all, afternoon tea is always a good choice!

Afternoon Tea in Your Area

Enjoy delicious finger sandwiches, delicate cakes, scones (or *scones*), and delectable tea fit for any occasion. Whether you are looking for a unique birthday party, a special hen do experience, or simply wishing to treat yourself, a family member or friend then afternoon tea is the perfect grand day out. This ceremonious activity first came about when Anna of Bedford in the 1880s could not wait between her morning meal and evening meal to eat, therefore she would ask for snacks to be brought to her in the afternoon to please her appetite – we couldn’t agree more!

This escalated to being enjoyed by many peers and thus the afternoon tea was born. Think cucumber sandwiches, warm scones with jam and cream, and a range of different teas to really tantalise your taste buds.

Bring your closest friends and family along to enjoy afternoon tea at one of our grand locations where you can really wow your guests. If you are looking for a quiet retreat from the busy city with your special someone or a close friend, then afternoon tea is the perfect treat for you both. This event is also great for occasions such as Mother’s Day to really spoil your mum to a memorable day out.

If you fancy yourself a bit of a tea connoisseur, an expert in cake tasting or a specialist in pointing out your pinkie finger then we have the event for you, whether you prefer a more traditional afternoon tea or a slightly quirkier establishment, we have an afternoon tea for everyone. If this sounds like something that gets your mouth watering, take a peek at our afternoon tea options below to see which one suits you most and don’t forget to dress your best!
