National afternoon tea week... could this be the best week of the year? I think it might. From 8th - 14th August 2016, it's the ultimate excuse to indulge in your favourite sandwiches, perfect patisserie, miniature cakes and endless tea. If you read my blog now and then, you'd know I'm a real afternoon tea advocate. So I've teamed up with Buy a Gift to bring your my top afternoon tea picks to while away the week.
A view from The Shard, to be precise. This one is perfect for tourists of London with a penchant for cake. What a gorgeous gift idea is this luxury afternoon tea for two after taking in the best views in London? For £99 (was £123.99), you can enjoy panoramic views of London before heading for delicious cakes and sandwiches at a nearby location. With Hotel Chocolat venues as options, you'll be spoilt for choice.
Another British institution, Shakespeare’s Globe. Book worms and history buffs will love this gift experience, which combines afternoon tea at the Swan with a tour of the Globe. For £62 for two, this also includes the usual fresh cakes, scones, sandwiches and selection of teas.
