Afternoon tea has been a British institution since Anna Maria Russell, 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. Charming 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. You will be treated to a selection of freshly made sandwiches, delicious scones with cream and jam, either fine pastries or cakes of the day to accompany your tea.
