National Cream Tea Day - Thursday 29th June

Experience the quintessentially British tradition...

First there was tea and then there was cake. Celebrate National Cream Tea Day at the 4* Abbey Hotel

National Cream Tea Day

With today being National Cream Tea Day we thought it would be rude not to share new of our delicious afternoon tea offering at our 4* independent hotel.

Quintessentially British, afternoon tea is not only one of the UK’s most famous pastimes, but also offers a welcome break during a long day. Relax and refresh yourself with tea, coffee, sandwiches, scones and perhaps even a glass of chilled Prosecco in our lovely surroundings.

 


The Story of The Afternoon Tea

The tradition of the afternoon tea dates back to the early nineteenth century when Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford is said to have complained of “having that sinking feeling” during the late afternoon. To revive herself, the Duchess had her servants bring her a pot of tea and a light snack, taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon. Then soon she began inviting her friends to join her for her additional meal in her room at Woburn Abbey. Before long all of fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.

And so became the Afternoon Tea!
