Will it be a seafront hotel or a cosy cafe that you pick to enjoy your next Afternoon Tea in Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate?

Did you know this tea-related ritual was introduced in the early 1840s to Britain by Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford and evolved as a mini meal to ward off hunger?

Afternoon Tea conjures up the simple pleasures of a bygone era, fine bone china, cucumber sandwiches and Victoria sponge. It'snow back in fashion, offering that little bit of decadence for today's discerning guests, but in a lot of instances delightfully affordable.

From the sandwiches cut into fingers, to the mini cakes and scones - is it jam or cream first? All washed down with tea or bubbles... what’s not to love about an Afternoon Tea?

Did you know that there's even a week celebrating Afternoon Tea? It ran 12th - 18th August 2024 #AfternoonTeaWeek
