THE HISTORY OF THE AFTERNOON TEA
The tradition of the afternoon tea dates back to the 18th Century when one of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, Anna Stanhope (the Duchess of Bedford) complained of a sinking feeling about 4 'o'clock in the afternoon. To revive herself, the Duchess had her servants bring her a pot of tea and a few breadstuffs and then soon began inviting her friends to join her for her additional meal in her room at Belvior Castle.
The tradition of the afternoon tea was born - and has become a British insititution. Whilst we can't promise liveried footmen we can offer a little luxury and indulgence, thats a thought that is guaranteed to lift your spirits!
