Afternoon Tea Week in London Bridge

Published on 10th August 2017

Dating back to 1840, the concept of Afternoon Tea as a social occasion was inspired by Anna, Duchess of Bedford, who found herself peckish in the ever extending gap between breakfast and a fashionably late dinner. Mid afternoon servings of tea, bread, butter and cake to the bedroom became a ritual, and soon the Duchess started inviting her friends over to share the spread. The occasion grew in popularity amongst upper-class and high society women in the 19th century who would dress in their finest attire to indulge in the drawing room. Evidently, as Afternoon Tea Week 2017 approaches, the tradition has stood the test of time. To celebrate we’ve picked out some of the best spots in London Bridge to take your tea in style…   High Chai at The LaLit London Experience afternoon tea with a twist at The LaLit London.
