Afternoon Tea at The Drawing Room.

    Newer Older

    Tradition has it that Afternoon Tea was 'invented' by Anna Maria, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, who in 1841 started drinking tea and having a bite to eat in the mid-afternoon, to tide her over during the long gap between lunch and dinner. This swiftly developed into a social occasion, which is as popular today as it was back then.
