Afternoon Tea in England

Afternoon Tea in England is a long standing tradition that dates back to 1840 a.d. which was introduced by the Dutchess of Bedford. What started out as a way to fend off hunger until dinner time became an English tradition. Every place that serves afternoon tea has it’s own flair.  Many restaurants will serve afternoon tea on the weekends only, some will have a small dedicated menu. Tea rooms on the other hand have a pretty set order of Afternoon Tea.  It has been my experience that every afternoon tea starts with finger sandwiches and end with scones and clotted cream. Many Tea Rooms have a variety of teas to choose from.  Here are a few places that I recommend.
