Uggeshall Country teas

Definitely an event not to be missed and you need to starve yourself a bit before you go to make the most of it.

On the last weekend of July, and the first weekend of August, this unique event has been taking place for the last 40 years or so. Set down a quiet country lane, in the shady orchard and gardens attached to a redundant red brick Victorian country school-house, various courses of teas are served to you at your table by comely waitresses; from bread and butter, drop scones, Suffolk rusks, to cakes and meringues, and of course, a big teapot and dainty cups and saucers.

After tea, there’s a chance to search the marquees of bric-a-brac, books and plants.

It’s a perfect afternoon’s entertainment.
