I've been to many different Afternoon teas around the country and must say Luton Hoo is definitely one of my favourites. The grounds are absolutely stunning and the inside decor is equally measurable. The staff are very friendly and attentive.

Booked afternoon tea for 4 here on 30th August. The champagne was excellent. A nice selection of teas that were constantly topped up. The sandwiches and cakes were delicious. Luton hoo is such a beautiful place and the staff were all very friendly and attentive.

You do get lots anyway but they did ask us if we wanted more tea. We go there often for dinner as well and the staff are wonderful. They are very helpful and can't do enough for you, so if you ask for more tea I'm sure... More
