Win Tickets for Afternoon Tea at its Birthplace, Belvoir Castle

To celebrate Afternoon Tea Week (12-18 August), we’ve teamed up with Belvoir Castle, the alleged birthplace of the much-loved British tradition, and have tickets for two people to indulge at The Balloon Bar at Belvoir.

‘Afternoon Tea’ is alleged to have been invented by Anna Russell, Duchess of Bedford, during a visit to see the 5th Duchess of Rutland in the mid-1840s. Today visitors to the country estate can choose from a quintessentially English experience at the Regency castle, or enjoy the new menu at The Balloon Bar in the Engine Yard at Belvoir.

The lucky prize winner will indulge on ‘tea for two’ at The Balloon Bar. In the whimsical, hot-air balloon themed interiors, enjoy a menu of scones, cream and jam, sandwiches and cakes, a pot of Duke’s tea, plus a glass of fizz.

Afternoon tea at The Balloon Bar, the latest addition to the multi-million-pound artisan shopping village and just a stone’s throw from Belvoir Castle, is served every day from 14:30 to 17:30 and starts from £29 for two people.
