Observe this most elegant of pastimes at Formby Hall, the country estate set upon sprawling parkland on the outskirts of Southport. Get comfortable in the chic L37 restaurant and tuck into a delectable spread: an array of seasonally inspired open sandwiches and wraps as well as supremely tasty miniature cakes and pastries. This great British tradition wouldn’t be complete without a freshly brewed cuppa; choose from a selection of teas or coffee. There’s more: be treated to a glass of Prosecco each, the perfect finishing touch. After indulging, where better for a postprandial stroll than the tranquil 200 acres beyond the doorstep?
