We came here mid January and I must say never been more pleased to spend so much money on an afternoon tea. All the staff is lovely and very friendly! I would definitely come back one day!!

Good but not the best afternoon Tea. Quite limited selection of teas and bland sandwiches. Cakes were good BUT surely the main reason to attend is for the beautiful interior of the building and the history which is amazing. The staff were also good.

Sorry I don't know the price of afternoon tea. I am sure if you look on line you will find a price or ring Luton Hoo and they will help you. Hope you enjoy!
Hi, do you have to pay extra for more tea and coffee after the one pot or is it refilled as part of the fixed price?
