Wellness & Spa
At The Duke of Richmond, we serve a sumptuous Afternoon Tea menu in the chic Zebra Lounge, the Conservatory, or, weather permitting, on our sun-washed terrace.
Afternoon Tea remains one of life’s great traditions and our menu naturally includes the classic Afternoon Tea served with a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with Guernsey cream and preserves, and tea pastries. Accompanied by your choice of traditional, flavoured, aromatic, fruit and green teas, and perhaps a glass of Champagne, Afternoon Tea is a true indulgence.
We are also proud to offer a range of Afternoon Tea menus so that all our guests, not matter their dietary requirements, can indulge in this delightful experience. For more information on how we endeavour to meet your dietary preferences, please see below.

A near-perfect semi-circular beach, carved out of the cliffs by the power of the sea, offers safe bathing in the sheltered bay, rock pools at low tide and endless diversions for the geologically inclined.

Studland Bay offers 3 miles of beautiful sandy beaches in the unspoilt surroundings of Studland Nature Reserve, a 3200-hectare area of heathland which is a haven for rare birds. The bay’s four main beaches include a National Trust visitor centre and a water sports equipment hire shop, both on Knoll Beach.
Whilst in the area, pop into the Square and Compass Pub in nearby Worth Matravers. You might also like to try some horse-riding at Studland Stables, for rides on the beach, in the forest, on the heath and along the coastal ridge – spectacular views!
