Indulge your taste buds with one of York's finest luxury afternoon tea experiences, from the comfort of our beautifully restored rail carriage—the Countess of York.

Afternoon tea

Our sophisticated afternoon tea menu features delicious sandwiches, homemade cakes and fancies and a wide selection of loose-leaf teas, with ingredients changing seasonally. We can also provide gluten-free options and a menu for children.

Our scones are baked to a traditional Yorkshire recipe and served with delicious vanilla-infused cream as well as homemade preserve. If you're feeling bubbly, we can add champagne to your afternoon tea package.

Looking to treat a loved one? Gift vouchers are available to buy in person or by calling us on 01904 686 295.

The carriage is also available to hire exclusively for that extra-special private or corporate event.
