Teddy Bears Picnic and Afternoon Tea at Almond Valley

Afternoon tea
    • It might still be chilly outside, but in the teddy bear woods the weather is always warm and cosy!

      On weekday afternoons in January, February and March you can bring along your favourite teddy bear, doll or other soft toy for a special woodland picnic at Almond Valley Heritage Centre, where there will be plenty of games, camping adventures and lots of other exciting things to explore!

      Once the picnic is over and the teddy bears get sleepy, it is time to tip-toe next door and indulge in a scrumptious afternoon tea, where you will find a delightful selection of sandwiches, savouries and a delicious array of cakes for the grown-ups, while the little ones can enjoy their very own tiered platter of dainty, tasty nibbles.

      Afternoon tea must be booked in advance, but once it is booked you can also enjoy free entry to the farm for all the family!
