Orchard Tea Garden Granchester


The Orchard - a corner of England where time stands still as the outside world rushes by. Relax and enjoy the genteel setting where more famous people have taken tea than anywhere else in the world. Over morning coffee or a light luncheon, soak up the atmosphere of a bygone age; follow in the footsteps of generations by sharing in the great English tradition of afternoon tea.

The Orchard, first planted in 1868, became a Tea Garden purely by chance. A group of Cambridge students asked Mrs Stevenson of Orchard House if she would serve them tea beneath the blossoming fruit trees rather than, as was usual, on the front lawn of the House. They were unaware that, on that spring morning in 1897, they had started a great Cambridge tradition.
