Indulging in a spot of afternoon tea is a tradition which can be traced back to the early 1800’s when the Duchess of Bedford decided that a small light snack of sandwiches, cakes and of course English tea, was necessary to keep hunger pangs at bay.

Today, the treat of taking afternoon tea has risen dramatically and a wide number of restaurants and cafes across the Tees Valley serve their very own scrumptious sweet and savoury versions of the popular light lunch.

As the seasons change many places offer themed afternoon teas, so you can enjoy a beautiful Spring inspired option or a festive Christmas treat.
