Who’s for a scone, finger sandwiches and tea then? You can't go wrong with Afternoon Tea in Liverpool.
Today, we thank the seventh Duchess of Bedford, Anna russel for the delightful tradition of Afternoon Tea. During the Victorian Times, the evening meal was served fashionably late in the Duchess’ home at 8pm. At around 4pm, the duchess would become hungry and requested that a tray of tea, bread & butter and cake be brought to her room in the later afternoon. This became a habit and the Duchess began inviting friends to join her. Here, afternoon tea was born.
These days, afternoon tea comes in all shapes and sizes in our city. From the traditional to the elaborate, edgy and boozy, whatever the occasion there will be a venue in Liverpool to suit all your afternoon tea needs.
