What is Afternoon Tea?

Afternoon Tea was invented in the 1840s by the Duchess of Bedford because there just weren’t enough meals in the day already. Consisting of a range of home-made sandwiches, home-baked fruit scones, dainty delicious cakes and a pot of tea, our Afternoon Teas are the perfect Victorian indulgence in the perfect Victorian setting of the Russell-Cotes.
