Whether enjoyed in a luxury hotel, tearoom, or as a home baked treat, the British love the combination of savoury and sweet treats, accompanied by some of the 100 million cups of tea we drink each day in the UK.

Afternoon tea itself is a quintessential British custom that typically takes place between lunch and dinner, and includes a delightful spread of tea, sandwiches, scones, and cakes.

The tradition of Afternoon Tea is attributed to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, who is said to have complained of "having that sinking feeling" during the late afternoon. The solution was a pot a tea and a light snack, taken privately at first, then inviting friends to join her, until all fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.

Afternoon Tea Week is a perfect excuse to celebrate this cherished British tradition and experience the elegance and charm associated with Afternoon Tea, with friends and family of all ages.

Hotels and restaurants will be offering discounts on their Afternoon Tea experience and many charities run fundraising and community events during Afternoon Tea Week.
