Introduced in Britain in the early 1840’s afternoon tea started off as a mini-meal used to curb people’s hunger before their evening meal at 8pm.

The delightful affair usually comprises delicate finger sized sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, sweet pastries and cakes.

Afternoon tea can be enjoyed almost anywhere including at home or in the park. However, the most splendid way to enjoy this British tradition is whilst being waited on in a hotel or classy establishment.

No matter your budget or taste, there is guaranteed to be an afternoon tea venue on this list to suit your preferences.
