Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea in Guildford is an English tradition not to be missed.

Barnett HIll afternoon teaDelicate sandwiches, delicious cakes, scones with jam and cream, all washed down with a nice cup of tea - or a glass of sparkling wine if you are going for a luxury treat!  There are many places in Guildford Town and in the surrounding countryside that offer superb afternoon tea - you can even enjoy afternoon tea on a boat on the river with the Wey and Arun Canal or views across the whole of Guildford from The Tea Terrace.

For luxury head for Guildford Harbour Hotel for a special afternoon tea with Prosecco. 

A hearty afternoon tea on a budget can be found in the Gallery Café (behind the Tourist Information Centre on the High Street) but you will find that most cafes and many pubs offer their own special take on the tradition.

In Guildford every week is  #AfternoonTeaWeek as we celebrate the best cuppa, best cake, best sandwiches - and even the best Prosecco!
