Afternoon Tea history
Afternoon tea, a quintessentially English Tradition was introduced to England in 1840 by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford. It is said that the Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner.Call us on 01626 355515 to Book
