It's sophisticated, elegant and you can totally pig out without feeling guilty... what's not to love about Afternoon Tea?
Summer is a perfect time to meet up with your friends and treat yourself to some cakes, scones and perfectly cut sandwiches.
Not sure where to go? We have 8 fabulous afternoon teas to try...each with a quirky twist!
- Richmond Tea Rooms, Manchester
Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, this tea room will transport you into Tim Burton's mind with its OTT decor and playful menu.
- Titanic, Belfast
Experience tea the way Rose did, in the height of luxury. It's even kitted out with a replica staircase - if only Leonardo was stood at the top. We can wish!
- Laguna Kitchen and Bar, Cardiff
This Gentleman's Afternoon Tea swaps finger sandwiches for mini burgers, scones for scotch eggs and cakes for sirloin stuffed Yorkshire puddings. Before you ask, it isn't just for men!
- One Aldwych, London
Head to London for a scrumdiddlyumptious afternoon tea inspired by the Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Tea. Enjoy golden eggs, blueberry brioche, candy floss and more!
- The Baltic Hotel, Liverpool
Not your typical light lunch, this Afternoon Punk Tea gives a truly American experience with its laid-back venue and servings of burger sliders, hot dogs, onion rings, fries, and brownies.
- Betty's, Harrogate
With its very own café pianist, the original Betty's opened in 1919. Since then it has become so popular that you'll probably have to queue to get inside but it's seriously worth it. If Harrogate is busy you can try Ilkley or York too!
- The Berkeley, London
A true Fashionista's Afternoon Tea. The Berkeley offers mouth-watering savoury skewers, taster spoons, and elegant canapés. Its inspiration comes from legendary fashion designers, like Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane and Balmain.
- The Bridge, Bradford on Avon
Take a step back in time into the Victorian period. Housed in a former blacksmith's cottage, you can tuck into classic afternoon tea served by staff in Victorian costumes.
Why not push the boat out this year or (nicely) ask your parents to and celebrate being exam free in style?
