Festive Afternoon Tea

Festive Afternoon Teas

Festive Afternoon Tea at Castle Howard is a very special, sumptuous experience: an exquisite  selection of savoury treats created by Head Chef David Haynes and a stunning array of sweet delights prepared by Head Pastry Chef Vanessa Wade, served beside a roaring fire in the elegant Grecian Hall.  You can always add a celebratory glass or two of champagne, if you wish!

The ambiance is exclusive: with only a very limited number of seats available, you’ll feel in the lap of luxury for the afternoon. The Afternoon Teas are served at reserved tables, with sittings at a selected times on different days, so you can enjoy your visit to the House and Grounds and experience 'Angels on High', our Christmas installation, before or afterwards.

How to Book 
Simply choose your preferred time and date on the website here, and book your admission tickets and Afternoon Tea tickets in the same transaction to ensure you are seated together. Please note, Afternoon Tea is available only to those with Christmas admission tickets, which include both the House and Grounds.  Tickets must be booked online at the latest by midnight on the day before your planned visit.


Christmas Admission, plus Afternoon Tea:  £43.95
Afternoon Tea only (for Friends and Annual Pass holders)  £25 

Friends and Annual Pass holders should choose the Annual Pass ticket when booking Afternoon Tea, and must present a valid membership card on the day of the visit. If Friends are visiting with non-members, these guests require regular admission tickets plus their Afternoon Tea booking.

You will receive confirmation of your booking via email.  Please print this confirmation and present  it to the ticket office on the day of your visit. 

Unfortunately, due to the nature of our Christmas afternoon tea we are unable to cater for those with gluten, wheat or dairy allergies.
