If we needed another reason to indulge in cakes and cream teas, the UK’s fifth annual Afternoon Tea Week starts on Monday 8th August 2016.
There are few British traditions more decadent than afternoon tea. Afternoon Tea Week is a celebration of one of the nation’s favourite traditions, the British love the combination of savoury and sweet treats, accompanied by some of the 165 million cups of tea we drink each day in the UK.
At Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa, you can enjoy one of our three fantastic Afternoon Tea packages we have to offer.
