Where to Enjoy a Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea

06 Mar 2023

We celebrate Mother’s Day this year on the 10th March.

You may be wondering about how to show your love and appreciation. You may want to make an occasion of it.

So how about spending the afternoon in a lovely relaxed setting, with good company, eating delicious food?

In other words, how about a Mother’s Day afternoon tea!

Afternoon tea is a British tradition that’s such a significant part of our history. 

It’s different from lunch, dinner or breakfast out.

Afternoon tea is a memorable occasion; a total treat with its delightful finger sandwiches, home-baked scones, pastries and cakes! And of course all washed down with refreshing cups of tea and Prosecco or Champagne!

In other words, afternoon tea is pure indulgence which makes it a great way to show your appreciation this Mother’s Day.
