Swinton Park and Fountains Abbey are featured in a new Tea Trail by Welcome to Yorkshire.

The trail features a taste of what Yorkshire’s tearooms have to offer and as part of their tasty campaign are hoping to highlight the county’s unique places to take tea.

The guide, which comes complete with map, also features the county’s famed tea companies, producers and includes tea-based recipes from Yorkshire’s Michelin star chefs.

Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “Afternoon tea in this great county is as popular now as it ever was, and our businesses and attractions have excelled themselves in proudly providing some of the finest around.

“We have some of the best tea to be enjoyed in the best places and this trail is not only a celebration of that, but also a guide.”

The trail is being supported by Bettys, who welcomed the new trail.

Paula Kaye, Catering and Retail Operations Manager for the tea rooms said: “Afternoon tea is one of life’s great pleasures and a much-loved special occasion.”

The Tea Trail leaflet is available from Tourist Information Centres, festivals, various hotels and attractions and can be ordered from the website
