A very civilised afternoon treat
Afternoon tea has been a British institution since Anna Maria, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, asked her footman to bring her a pot of tea and light refreshment one afternoon in 1840. The ritual caught on and afternoon tea became the corner stone of high society dining.
These days taking tea as a light afternoon meal has become much more accessible, but has not lost a crumb of its charm. Luxury country hotels and traditional tea rooms will provide welcoming surroundings for this decadent treat which really is a special experience to take your time over.
On arrival you will be greeted by staff who will seat you. Your afternoon tea may vary slightly depending on which location you choose but in each case you will be treated to a selection of freshly made sandwiches, delicious scones with cream and jam, and, in most locations, either fine pastries or cakes of the day to accompany your tea.
When can you go?
This experience is available Monday to Sunday in most locations, throughout the year, dependent on availability. Valid until 1st December 2012.
