Air Festival Afternoon Tea

Enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea on the Russell-Cotes Terrace during the Bournemouth Air Festival 2023.

With stunning views of the sea and sky, the Russell-Cotes Terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy the thrills of the Bournemouth Air Festival.

This year, our Terrace will be exclusively available for pre-booked Air Festival Afternoon Teas. Set back from the crowds, with some of the best views in Bournemouth, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

With two sittings available, you can choose a morning (11 am), or afternoon (2pm) time-slot during the Air Festival dates Thursday 31 August – Sunday 3 September 2023


What’s included

A reserved table on the Terrace, with views of the Air Festival flights and Bournemouth beach, pier and coastline.

Afternoon Tea: a selection of sandwiches, freshly baked scones and delicious mini-cakes, all served with tea (or the option to make it a sparkling afternoon tea with prosecco).

There are 2 time slots 11am-1:30pm and 2pm-4:30pm

Standard Afternoon Tea £30 per person

Prosecco Afternoon Tea £35 per person
